LEARN HOW DEMOCRACY REFORMS BECOME LAW IN MISSOURI

Twenty-six states, including Missouri & DC allow citizen-led ballot initiatives and have a process for citizens to get measures on the ballot to be voted on to become law. This means that a group of citizens may place a measure on the ballot through gathering signatures, and, in some states, getting legislative approval once the set number of signatures is reached.  LEARN MORE!

Missourian Editorial: Clean Missouri Retained

Legislation aimed at doing away with Clean Missouri, Amendment 1, approved by voters, was defeated in the Senate Fiscal Oversight Committee. The one provision that this legislation, HJR48, targeted was to have another vote that if passed would have done away with the nonpartisan plan for redistricting, SB213 did pass, and awaits the governor’s signature, which establishes rules for the nonpartisan state demographer and empowers citizens to be more engaged in the upcoming redistricting process. SB213 implements what voters overwhelmingly approved last November.
