November Election – Amendment 4 – Changes For Bingo!

Voters that cast a ballot in the November 6th election will consider four amendments to the state constitution and three propositions.  Today, KCHI presents the Amendment 4 Ballot Language and Fair Ballot Language.  Amendment 4 would affect BINGO in the state.

Official Ballot Title:

Do you want to amend the Missouri constitution to:

  • remove language limiting bingo game advertising that a court ruled unenforceable; and
  • allow a member of a licensed organization conducting bingo games to participate in the management of bingo games after being a member of the organization for six months instead of the current two years?

State and local governmental entities estimate no costs or savings from this proposal.

Fair Ballot Language:

A “yes” vote will amend the Missouri Constitution to remove language limiting bingo game advertising that a court ruled was unconstitutional and not enforceable.   This amendment would also allow a member of a licensed organization conducting bingo games to participate in the management of bingo games after being a member of the organization for six months.  Currently, the constitution requires two years of membership.

A “no” vote will not amend the Missouri Constitution regarding bingo games.

If passed, this measure will have no impact on taxes.
