KANSAS CITY, Mo. — This week on 4Star Politics, we’re taking a look at Amendment 3 in Missouri, which voters will see on ballots in November.
FOX4’s Loren Halifax fills in for vacationing John Holt, and The Kansas City Star’s Dave Helling assumes his regular role as the beginning of the show focuses on an opposed view to Amendment 3.
Shawn Soendker Nicholson, who leads the “No on Amendment 3” campaign, joins the show to state the reasons why he thinks voters should reject the measure.
Amendment 3 would change the state constitution a few different ways, notably reversing the “Clean Missouri” government reforms voters passed in 2018.
The amendment would change the process for redrawing state legislative district boundaries, charging an appointed commission with the responsibility. It would reduce campaign contributions from individuals and companies to state senators by $100 per election. It would also prohibit gifts from paid lobbyists to legislators and their staff.
4Star Politics will talk to someone who supports the amendment before Election Day.
Talking about voting with Sam Zeff from KCUR
