CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS
CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT NO. 1
   Proposed by the 95th General Assembly
(First Regular Session) SJR 5
Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to require the office of county assessor to be an elected position in all counties with a charter form of government, except counties with a population between 600,001-699,999?
It is estimated this proposal will have no costs or savings to state or local governmental entities.
             YES - FOR THE AMENDMENT
             NO - AGAINST THE AMENDMENT
CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT NO. 2
Proposed by the 95th General Assembly
(First Regular Session) HJR 15
Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to require that all real property used as a homestead by Missouri citizens who are former prisoners of war and have a total service-connected disability be exempt from property taxes?
The number of qualified former prisoners of war
and the amount of each exemption are unknown,
however, because the number who meet the qualifications is expected to be small, the cost to local governmental entities should be minimal. Revenue to the state blind pension fund may be reduced by $1,200.
          YES - FOR THE AMENDMENT
          NO - AGAINST THE AMENDMENT
CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT NO. 3
Proposed by Initiative Petition
Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to prevent the state, counties, and other political subdivisions from imposing any new tax, including a sales tax, on the sale or transfer of homes or any other real estate?
It is estimated this proposal will have no costs or savings to state or local governmental entities.
             YES - FOR THE AMENDMENT
              NO - AGAINST THE AMENDMENT
_______________________________________
STATUTORY MEASURES
PROPOSITION A
Proposed by Initiative Petition
Shall Missouri law be amended to:
   * repeal the authority of certain cities to use       
       earnings taxes to fund their budgets;
   * require voters in cities that currently have
       an earnings tax to approve continuation of  
       such tax at the next general municipal      
       election and at an election held every 5   
       years thereafter;
   * require any current earnings tax that is not      
       approved by the voters to be phased out
       over a period of 10 years; and
  * prohibit any city from adding a new
       earnings tax to fund their budget?
The proposal could eliminate certain city earnings taxes. For 2010, Kansas City and the City of St. Louis budgeted earnings tax revenue of $199.2 million and $141.2 million, respectively. Reduced earnings tax deductions could increase state revenues by $4.8 million. The total cost or savings to state and local governmental entities is unknown.
          YES - FOR THE PROPOSITION
          NO - AGAINST THE PROPOSITION
_________________________________________

PROPOSITION B
Proposed by Initiative Petition
Shall Missouri law be amended to:
   * require large-scale dog breeding operations 
       to provide each dog under their care with 
       sufficient food, clean water, housing and
       space; necessary veterinary care; regular
       exercise and adequate rest between
       breeding cycles;

   * prohibit any breeder from having more than
       50 breeding dogs for the purpose of selling 
       their puppies as pets; and
   * create a misdemeanor crime of "puppy mill
       cruelty" for any violations?
It is estimated state governmental entities will incur costs of $654,768 (on-going costs of $521,356 and one-time costs of $133,412). Some local governmental entities may experience costs related to enforcement activities and savings related to reduced animal care activities.
         YES - FOR THE PROPOSITION
          NO - AGAINST THE PROPOSITION

Proposition to amend the Charter of the City of St. Louis to increase the maximum fine to one thousand dollars ($1,000.00), by repealing existing Section 24 of Article IV and enacting a new Section 24 of Article IV relating to fines.
            YES - FOR THE PROPOSITION
            NO - AGAINST THE PROPOSITION
PREFERENTIAL PROPOSITION L

MISSOURI BALLOT MEASURES FOR NOVEMBER 2 GENERAL ELECTION


Posted at 06:10 PM on Tuesday, October 19, 2010 by District 12 Missouri in Dept Postings
Article Supplied by the VFW from this web page:http://vfwwebcom.org/mo/dist12/85046/
MISSOURI BALLOT MEASURES FOR NOVEMBER 2 GENERAL ELECTION

AMENDMENT #1:Official Ballot Title: Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to require the office of county assessor to be an elected position in all counties with a charter form of government, except counties with a population between 600,001-699,999?

A “yes” vote amends the Missouri Constitution to require that assessors in charter counties be elected officials. This proposal will affect St. Louis County and any Missouri county that adopts a charter form of government. The exception is for Jackson County.

A “no” vote will not change the Missouri Constitution and will keep the St. Louis county assessor position an appointed one.
Fiscal Impact: This amendment is estimated to have no impact on taxes or general revenue or any costs or savings to local government entities.
This amendment was placed on the ballot after passage of Senator Eric Schmitt’s SJR 5 in 2009.

AMENDMENT #2:Official Ballot Title: Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to require that all real property used as a homestead by Missouri citizens who are former prisoners of war and have a total service-connected disability be exempt from property taxes?

A “yes” vote will amend the Missouri Constitution to exempt any Missouri citizen who is a former prisoner of war with a total service-connected disability from having to pay property taxes on all real property used as a homestead.

A “no” vote will not change the Missouri Constitution to add this exemption for former prisoners of war.
Fiscal Impact: Because the number of citizens estimated to meet this definition is very few, this amendment is estimated to have a minimal impact on local governments and is estimated to decrease the state blind pension fund by $1,200.
This amendment was placed on the ballot due to passage of Representative Maria Chappelle-Nadal’s HJR 15 in 2009.

AMENDMENT #3:

Official Ballot Title: Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to prevent the state, counties, and other political subdivisions from imposing any new tax, including a sales tax, on the sale or transfer of homes or any other real estate?

A “yes” vote will amend the Missouri Constitution to prevent the state, any county, or other political subdivision from placing a tax on the sale or transfer of homes or any other real estate. This includes any transfer tax or sales tax.

A “no” vote will not change the Missouri Constitution to prevent the imposition of such a tax.
Fiscal Impact: This measure is estimated to have no impact to the costs or savings of local governments or state entities.
This amendment was placed on the ballot by Missouri’s initiative petition process.

PROPOSITION A:Official Ballot Title: Shall Missouri law be amended to: repeal the authority of certain cities to use earnings taxes to fund their budgets; require voters in cities that currently have an earnings tax to approve continuation of such tax at the next general municipal election and at an election held every 5 years thereafter; require any current earnings tax that is not approved by the voters to be phased out over a period of 10 years; and prohibit any city from adding a new earnings tax to fund their budget?

A “yes” vote amends Missouri law to repeal the authority of certain cities to use earnings taxes to fund their budgets. The amendment also requires voters in the cities that currently use earnings taxes as a revenue generator (St. Louis and Kansas City) to approve continuation of the earnings tax at the next general municipal election and at an election held every five years, or if voted down, phase out the tax over a period of ten years.

A “no” vote will not change Missouri law regarding the use of earnings taxes by Missouri cities.
Fiscal impact: For 2010, Kansas City budgeted earnings tax revenue of $199.2 million and St. Louis budgeted earnings tax revenue of $141.2 million. Reduced earnings tax deductions could increase state revenue by approximately $4.8 million. The total cost or savings to state and local governmental entities is unknown.
This proposition was placed on the ballot by Missouri’s initiative petition process.

PROPOSITION B:Official Ballot Title: Shall Missouri law be amended to: require large-scale dog breeding operations to provide each dog under their care with sufficient food, clean water, housing and space, necessary veterinary care, regular exercise and adequate rest between breeding cycles; prohibit any breeder from having more than 50 breeding dogs for the purpose of selling their puppies as pets; and create a misdemeanor crime of “puppy mill cruelty” for any violations?

A “yes” vote will amend Missouri law to require large-scale dog breeding operations to provide each dog under their care with sufficient food, clean water, housing and space; necessary veterinary care; regular exercise and adequate rest between breeding cycles. The amendment also prohibits any breeder from using more than 50 breeding dogs for the purpose of selling their puppies as pets and creates the misdemeanor crime of “puppy mill cruelty” for any violations.
A “no” vote will not change the Missouri law relating to dog breeders.
Fiscal impact: It is estimated that state entities will incur costs of approximately $650,000 for enforcement. Some local government entities may experience costs related to enforcement of the law as well as possible savings from reduced animal care activities.
This proposition was placed on the ballot by Missouri’s initiative petition process.

Robin Carnahan-Election News- Invitation

Recently someone asked me why I support Ms Robin Carnahan. 
My reply was- I support Ms Carnahan because:
  • Mr Blunts past behavior of
    1. Ear Marks,
    2. reckless and wasteful spending habits,
    3. Lobbying Activities create Conflict of Interest,
    4. He is Part of the Reason that "Washington is Broken"
  • Mr Blunt supports Big Business.
Ms Robin Carnahan I believe has very ambitious goals.  
  1. She supports Renewable Energy and the Green Eco Friendly direction that is needed to reduce the USAs Fossil Fuel Dependence which will help in slowing down Climate Change.
  2. She is more capable of Creating Jobs for Missouri Workers
  3. Her Stance on the Issues that we are facing in Todays World are more In-Line with the Values that best represent the Majority of the People.
  4. I don't believe Ms Robin Carnahan will not Sell the People of Missouri Out to the Highest Bidder as Roy Blunt has previously done.
Now on with the Last Email I received from Ms Robin Carnahan--[ I encourage everyone to Vote-- On the Issues and People involved in Making the Laws that Govern We the People.Scotty] 


Dear Scotts Contracting,
I just wrapped up the last of the only two debates we're having here in Missouri.
People have real questions about where all the candidates stand on the issues, and I think they deserve answers. They deserve to hear who we are, and what we believe.
We have serious issues facing our state, and we need a Senator dedicated to solving them. People are out of work, jobs are hard to find and we've got a culture of corruption in Washington that serves the lobbyists and the corporate special interests rather than working families.
Washington is broken, but the good news is we can fix it. My family and I have a deep and enduring commitment to the people of Missouri. It's who I am. It's who I've always been. So don't let any of the false smear attacks confuse you about that.
Thank you for all your hard work. For everything that you've done so far, and all the work you're going to do in the next 18 days. I am truly blessed to have your support.
Now let's go win.
Robin Carnahan
