The Missouri Senate is preparing to debate two dangerous bills that could effectively shut down the ballot initiative process for Missourians. We, the people, petitioned our fellow Missourians to raise the minimum wage, expand Medicaid, and more when our leaders failed to act.
Now, certain politicians are no longer satisfied with only reversing the will of the people. They want to end direct democracy and silence us. We have fought against – and stopped – bills like this before. We can – and must – do so again.
Use this form to contact your state senator NOW to stop these anti-democratic bills and protect the ballot initiative process.
Missouri’s initiative petition process is a constitutional right that has worked for over a century. Because certain politicians are afraid of the power of the people, they are trying to destroy this right.
Here’s what they’re trying to do:
- Charge you a $500 fee just to start the process
- Shorten the period of time in which you can gather signatures
- Increase the required number of signatures by hundreds of thousands
- Require a ⅔ supermajority vote to become law, instead of a simple majority
Send a letter to your senator now to stop them from taking away the power of the people.
