We urge a no vote on Amendment 1 in August. At best it's unecessary. At worse it protects large corporations at the expense of consumers.
Can someone explain to me why groups such as Missouri Right to Life and Missouri Family Network would propagandize against Proposition B? I am honestly baffled.
Failure of tobacco-tax increase on Tuesday's ballot follows pattern of urban support, rural opposition and narrow finishes.
Judicial change proposal, abandoned by its backers, loses badly.
A vote for Proposition B is a vote for our children and young people because Prop B will give better schools and will give educational programs to prevent young people from smoking.
Proposition B, the Missouri tobacco tax initiative that would lead to a tax increase of up to 760 percent on a pack of cigarettes, is over 7,000 words long. I encourage voters to read its fine print carefully.
The best reason for Missouri voters to support Proposition B, which raises Missouri's lowest-in-the-nation tobacco tax from 17 cents to 90 cents, has little to do with tobacco or the schools, colleges and universities that will benefit from the increased revenue.

FAIR: To Forest Park Forever and St. Louis City Hall, which have worked out a public-private partnership that secures 30 years of funding for Forest Park maintenance and improvement. The original Forest Park Forever deal with the city 10 years ago restored the city's crown jewel. This deal w…
In 2010, Missourians responded to an overload of heart-tugging messages by casting a sympathetic vote to Proposition B, which was aimed at protecting puppies.
FAIR: Proposition B on the Nov. 6 ballot in Missouri would raise the 17-cent tax on a package of cigarettes to 90 cents. Last week, at a forum on the issue in Columbia, a proponent, state Rep. Chris Kelly, D-Columbia, was asked if the measure was a regressive tax on poor people, who are more…
There are many citizen petitions circulating, but the most important is "Your Vote Counts" because, if passed in November, this constitutional amendment would force state legislators to respect the will of the voters.

New dog breeding bill pleases some animal advocates, agricultural interests.
Ah, Missouri, the Show Me state! Show me a step forward in political, social or economic progress and you can bet that state legislators will show me two steps backward!
I'm grateful that Gov. Nixon met with both the Humane Society of Missouri as well as those representing Missouri animal agriculture a few weeks ago.
When Missouri voters passed Proposition B last November, they expressed a view that reflects the feelings of a majority of Americans-that pets are part of the family and as such they deserve a high level of care and respect.

We had an election back in November 2010 on Prop B, and the issues were debated and we the voters decided, didn't we?
