For years now the state of Missouri’s infrastructure has been a concern for public officials, politicians and Missourians on the whole.The Missouri Department of Transportation and state legislators have come up with a way to combat the department’s shrinking budget, but it’s up to Missouri voters to approve it. Amendment 7 will be on the August ballot: it’s a three quarter cent statewide sales tax increase on everything except groceries and medicine.
Missouri voters will decide during the August primary on several ballot measures, including a proposed three-quarters-cent sales tax increase to bolster transportation funding.
Today Gov. Jay Nixon referred five measures to the August 5th ballot and three proposals to the November 4th election. Voters consider constitutional amendments endorsed by the Legislature in November unless the governor sets a different election date.
