05/20/24 Missouri Mondays - MOLeg 2024 session ends and the effort to gut the citizens initiative process and end majority rule FAILS! THANK YOU Senate Democrats! THANK YOU!


Welcome to Missouri Mondays! 


The 2024 MO legislative session ended on Friday with the defeat of SJR 74 that would have gutted our 100+ year old initiative petition process.  It failed thanks to Senate Democrats who stood for 51-hours filibustering the so-called “ballot candy” language  meant to confuse and trick voters into changing the IP process and ending one person, one vote majority rule. 


Denise Lieberman, general counsel and director of the Missouri Voter Protection Coalition issued this response:  “The Missouri Voter Protection Coalition is elated that lawmakers upheld the fundamental fairness of majority rule in Missouri's citizen initiative process. As a result, Missouri voters across the political spectrum retain their ability to have a direct voice in our laws through the citizen initiative process. 


We are particularly grateful to Senators who stood for a record 51-hours to oppose this proposal, and for Senators - Republican and Democrat - who rejected efforts at ballot trickery. The initiative process is a proven tool of liberty in Missouri for more than a century, allowing citizens across the political spectrum to have a direct say in the laws that impact them and their families. Today, voters of Missouri can rest assured that they retain the ultimate power to hold government accountable, and propose ideas they want to move our state forward.”
