Secretary of State Jason Kander announced that the initiative petition for a one cent transportation sales tax has been approved for circulation. The official ballot language reads:
Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to:
- increase funding for state, county, and municipal street, road, bridge, highway and public transportation initiatives by increasing state sales/use tax by 1%;
- prohibit a change in gasoline taxes and prohibit toll roads or bridges; and
- require those measures to be re-approved by voters every 10 years?
Annual increased revenue is estimated at approximately $723 million.
