Here’s what LAWMAKERS are saying about SJR38 and Clean Missouri/Amendment 1
“The drafters of SJR38 got too cute by half,” said attorney Mark E. Moreland, President-Elect of the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys. “Buried in the final pages of SJR38, they essentially admit that their intent is to produce gerrymandered maps — by limiting citizens’ ability to challenge unfair maps in court, and by placing new limits in the constitution on what judges can do to fix rigged maps, even if they find a map to be illegal.”
