HJR 65 -- Missouri Tobacco Settlement
This proposed amendment to the Missouri Constitution establishes
an endowment fund for receipt of any legal settlement or award
relating to tobacco-related products. All moneys in the fund
and accrued interest must remain in the fund for 10 years.
After 10 years the moneys would only be appropriated for
programs related to tobacco use, research for cures to
tobacco-related illnesses, access to health care and education
for children and families, and budget emergencies.
