Ballot Issues Editorial

RaytownOnline.com position on two of the Constitutional Amendments that will be on the ballot next Tuesday.

Constitutional Amendment #1: The Right to Farm  – NO  

The very name of this amendment is deceptive. This amendment is not about the right to farm in any traditional sense. It is about the right to put HUGE hog production facilities in Missouri, without local government having any control.  The amendment also loosens restrictions on foreign ownership of Missouri farmland and loosens restrictions on puppy mills.  In the past county and city governments have been able to prevent damage to the local air quality and threats to the local water table by the use of zoning and health codes that control where large hog factories can be placed. This amendment would prevent local government from deciding where they want to allow hog factories to be placed. This bill is totally for the benefit of LARGE hog factories, foreign farm investors, and puppy mills. It does nothing for family farms and takes power away from local government ability to protect their citizens. 

Constitutional Amendment #7 Sales Tax Increase for Transportation – NO

We agree there is a need to repair and upgrade Missouri highways and bridges, BUT this is the WRONG way to pay for it.  The logical source of revenue would be an increase on the gasoline and diesel fuel tax, a tax that has not been raised for over 20 years. The fuel tax has not even been adjusted for inflation and is one of the lowest in the Midwest.  The amendment goes further, it prevents any raising of fuel taxes for 10 years.  Those that use and put the most wear and tear on our highways are the trucking industry, and they are a major force behind this legislation.  NO free ride for trucking companies at the expense of everyone else, including people that do not or cannot even drive.
