Voters in Missouri in the November election gave strong support for Amendment 1, commonly known as Clean Missouri.

It limits gifts to lawmakers, subjects members of the House and Senate to the open-records law and changes the process for redrawing legislative districts after the 2020 census.

There are moves in the General Assembly to go against the voters’ will and change or weaken Amendment 1. Clean Missouri fears those moves and supports defenders of the amendment with a petition drive urging lawmakers to leave Amendment 1 intact.

Lawmakers should honor and respect the will of voters and keep their hands off Amendment 1.
