Constitution Amendments and Propositions on 2010 Ballot



Did you know there are 3 Missouri Constitution Amendments and 2 Propositions on Missouri's 2010 General Election Ballot?  Too many of Missouri's voters are unaware of them. Below is the summary compiled by The Missouri Family Network.

Five Statewide Questions on Your Nov. 2, 2010 General Election Ballot

The following five statewide ballot measures have been certified for the November 2, 2010 general election. Three of the questions are proposed amendments to the Missouri State Constitution, two of which were approved by the State Legislature and the third placed on the ballot through a citizens' initiative. The last two questions are Propositions, or proposals aimed at changing state statutes, both of which come before voters through citizens' initiatives.

While additional local ballot questions may be on individual county or local community agendas,  
these five questions will be on every ballot for all registered voters throughout the 
State of Missouri. Voters are encouraged to search out all the information possible on these issues as well as all your area candidates.



Five Statewide Ballot Questions

Constitutional Amendment 1 - Vote “YES”
hold county assessors accountable!
Requires all county assessors to be publicly elected, except Jackson County (KC area).
Current law provides that assessors in charter class counties be appointed. All other county assessors are already elected.  This constitutional amendment would immediately affect 
only Jefferson, St. Charles and St. Louis Counties

Constitutional Amendment 2 - Vote “YES”
to support disabled former POWs!
This constitution amendment would require that all real property used as a homestead by any former prisoner of war who has a total service connected disability to be exempt from property taxes. The homes of such individuals would not be taxed due to their service, commitment and sacrifice on our behalf and in the defense of freedom.

 Constitutional Amendment 3 - Vote “YES”
prohibit sales taxes on your home!
Proposed through a citizen's initiative, this constitutional amendment would prohibit any state or local taxing authority from creating a new sales tax on your home or any other real estate. Currently there are no sales taxes on the transfer of property, but recent political debates have raised the idea as a possible source of future revenue.
 
Proposition A - Vote “YES”
limit your local government income taxes!
This proposed statutory measure repeals the authority of those cities currently allowed to impose income taxes on paychecks earned within their jurisdiction. Cities with such taxes must allow a public vote at the next municipal election and every five years thereafter. Cities with no earnings tax would be prohibited from ever adopting one.
 
Proposition B - B is Bad! - Vote “NO”
stop animal rights extremism!
Also known as "the fake puppy mill proposal," Proposition B is BAD! Current Missouri law already prohibits abusive dog facilities. Prop B is deceptive in not defining "puppy mills" while creating burdensome regulations that would treat all licensed breeders as abusive. The organization responsible for putting this on the ballot has an extremist agenda.
For more information on Prop B see the special Metrovoice articles exposing HSUS.
