Backers of a constitutional amendment on the November general election ballot in Missouri campaigned in Maryville earlier today.
Proponents of Amendment One say, if passed, the measure would lower campaign contribution limits for state legislative candidates, eliminate most lobbyists gifts and require politicians to wait two years before becoming lobbyists. State Senator Rob Schaaf of St. Joseph, whose term limits prevented him from seeking another term in the state legislature, says Amendment One would help eliminate corruption in state politics.
Schaaf says another important provision of Amendment One calls for a nonpartisan expert to draw fair legislative district maps, which would then be reviewed by a citizen commission for fairness and competitiveness.
Earlier this month, Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft certified the Amendment One initiative, also known as "Clean Missouri" to appear on the November ballot.
