Missouri Introduces Joint Resolution to Ban Lobbyist Gifts
Sen. Dan Hegeman, a Republican from Cosby, is sponsoring a Joint Resolution for a constitutional amendment which would ban all gifts from lobbyists or lobbyist principals.
Additionally, the bill will reduce contributions made to or accepted by any candidate or committee from $2,500 to $2,000.
The proposed constitutional amendment also repeals the redistricting system approved by voters in 2018 through Amendment 1.
If passed, the proposed amendment would be voted on by the state on November 3, or at a special election to be called by the governor for that purpose.
