AMENDMENT 7 INFORMATION
On August 5, Missouri voters will decide on Constitutional Amendment 7, a ballot measure to temporarily raise Missouri’s sales tax by ¾ of a cent. All proceeds from the tax would go toward needed transportation improvements across the state. The amendment’s provisions include the creation of a project list prior to the election so Missourians can see what their tax dollars would fund.The public is invited to attend the meetings at any time during the advertised hours to speak to regional planning partners and MoDOT representatives. No formal presentations will be made. There are multiple open house meetings scheduled in each region of the state. The entire public meeting schedule, the draft transportation improvement list, and an online comment form are available at www.modot.org/movingforward. Paula Gough, MoDOT Northeast District Engineer, prepared a short video outlining Amendment 7. http://youtu.be/vnUzgshDAJI
