It's time to stop the big money, powerful lobbyists, & partisan games

Amendment 1 is our chance to increase integrity,
transparency, accountability in government — and to take back power from special interests.

We need a state government that is open and accountable to the people — not beholden to special interests.

Amendment 1 is our chance to take power away from
special interests — and to increase integrity, transparency and
accountability in government.

Eliminate almost all lobbyist gifts in the General Assembly

by banning any single gift worth more than $5. Records show that since 2004, there has been an average of $868,000 in lobbyist gift giving in Missouri — every year. No matter what party you believe in, this is not right.

Require that legislative records be open to the public

Our state legislature keeps their own records secret, but expects others to follow open government laws.

Lower campaign contribution limits for state legislative candidates

Every voice should count equally, but for too long in Missouri, huge campaign contributions have made too many of our leaders beholden to a small number of self-serving donors. Amendment 1 will cap donations at $2,500 for state senate candidates, and $2,000 for state house candidates.

Require politicians to wait two years before becoming lobbyists

We need to close the revolving door where politicians can now become lobbyists shortly after leaving office. We must increase integrity and take back our government by shutting out special interest lobbyists.

Ensure that neither political party is given an unfair advantage when new maps are drawn after the next census

by asking a nonpartisan expert to draw fair legislative district maps, which would then be reviewed by a citizen commission.

Make sure our elected leaders focus on important priorities — not just what big donors and lobbyists want

When we get big money out of state politics, we force candidates to win our votes, debate the issues, and represent us— their constituents.
