Governor’s withholdings reason to support HJR 72

The following is a statement from AIM president Ray McCarty:

“Governor Nixon’s announcement points out the need for Missouri citizens to vote for HJR 72, soon to be added to the November ballot by the Secretary of State. The constitutional amendment provides that the governor notify the legislature when he or she is reducing the amount budgeted to items in the state spending plan when the state’s cash flow is not sufficient to allow the item to be properly funded. This constitutional amendment will stop any governor from using this withholding power for political purposes and establish checks and balances over expenditures that do not exist now. That is why AIM supports HJR 72 and calls upon the state’s voters to ratify the amendment at the ballot box in November.”
