November Ballot Issues
Today, Missouri’s Secretary of State announced that two of the four groups that submitted ballot measures received enough valid signatures on their petitions to be placed on the November 4 ballot.
Gambling loss limits and home health care unions — you made it!
Renewable energy proposals and eminent domain constitutional amendments — better luck next time.
The gambling loss limits proposal would repeal Missouri’s law that limits gambling losses to no more than $500 in a two-hour period. The Post-Dispatch paraphrased a spokesman for the group that sponsored the petition as saying that eliminating loss limits would “help Missouri casinos compete against those in neighboring states” and secure an estimated $100 million toward public schools. Show-Me Daily has covered this issue before. As for the home health care union proposal, annual costs are estimated to exceed $510,560.
