Amendment 1: CLEAN MO Initiative on Nov. 6 Ballot. Lobbyists, big donors, and small groups of political insiders have too much control and influence over Missouri state government. But it doesn't have to be this way. The CLEAN MO initiative is a comprehensive reform measure that will make our state government more transparent, limit the power of big money in our legislature, and ensure we're able to hold legislators accountable when they fail to act in the public interest. Missouri voters will decide whether to adopt this amendment or not on November 6. Come learn what CLEAN MO will do to improve how Jefferson City functions.
