Then, Anne and Rachel are joined by Sean Soendker Nicholson who was a key member of the team that got Clean Missouri passed in 2018. He helps us understand how citizen initiative petitions get on the ballot and why it is such an important right to protect!

Episode 15: Legislative Update: 2.28.22



Read about and make your own decision (ACTION DUE 11:59PM 2/28):

Write a letter to your editor about these initiative petition bills (DUE 3/7)SJR 31 + SJR 37. The League opposes them because:
  • The initiative petition process is one of the purest forms of democratic participation.
  • For more than a century, Missouri citizens across the political spectrum have been able to make their voices heard through the initiative petition process.
  • These bills make it harder for everyday citizens to participate in our democracy.
  • These bills make it harder for citizen-generated petitions to pass (SJR 31: 60% or SJR 37: 66%), while legislature-generated petitions will still only require a simple majority.
  • SJR 37 increases the number of signatures required to get the petition onto the ballot (there is already a very high signature threshold).
