Submitting to the qualified voters of Missouri an amendment repealing section 47(c) of article IV of the Constitution of Missouri, and adopting one new section in lieu thereof relating to the parks and soils tax.
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring therein:
That at the next general election to be held in the state of Missouri, on Tuesday next following the first Monday in November, 2006, or at a special election to be called by the governor for that purpose, there is hereby submitted to the qualified voters of this state, for adoption or rejection, the following amendment to article IV of the Constitution of the state of Missouri:
Section A. Section 47(c), article IV, Constitution of Missouri, is repealed and one new section adopted in lieu thereof, to be known as section 47(c), to read as follows:
Section 47(c). The effective date of this amendment shall be November 8, 1998. All laws inconsistent with this amendment shall no longer remain in full force and effect after the effective date of this section. All of the provisions of Sections 47(a), 47(b) and 47(c) shall be self-enforcing except that the General Assembly shall adjust brackets for the collection of the sales and use taxes. The additional revenue provided by Sections 47(a), 47(b) and 47(c) shall not be part of the "total state revenue" within the meaning of Sections 17 and 18 of Article X of this Constitution. The expenditure of this additional revenue shall not be an "expense of state government" under Section 20 of Article X of this Constitution. This Section 47(a), 47(b) and 47(c) shall terminate [after ten years following the effective date of this amendment] on the date of the general election in 2016 unless otherwise renewed. Beginning in the general election in 2016 and every ten years thereafter, this Section 47(a), 47(b), and 47(c) shall be resubmitted to the voters for their approval or rejection. If rejected by a majority of the voters, Section 47(a), 47(b), and 47(c) shall terminate at the end of the state fiscal year immediately following the state fiscal year in which such election occurred.
