Missouri Lawmaker Seeks Voter-backed Laws Protected From Legislative Tinkering

JEFFERSON CITY — A Missouri House member wants to make it harder for legislators to tinker with laws approved by voters.

Democrat Scott Sifton of Affton says his proposed constitutional amendment would encourage lawmakers to amend voter-approved measures only when there's a problem that needs to be fixed.

Sifton's proposal states that for two years after a ballot measure is approved, the legislature would need a two-thirds majority vote to change it. For the next two years, lawmakers would need a four-sevenths majority vote.

Bills have been filed in the legislature this year to overturn parts of the dog-breeding law approved by voters in November. There's also legislation to change a voter-backed law on earnings taxes.

Sifton's measure would go on a future statewide ballot if it clears the House and Senate.
