JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri court hearing has been scheduled for Tuesday on a challenge to the ballot summary and cost estimate for a transportation tax proposal. The Cole County judge set the hearing to occur on the same day that absentee voting begins for the August ballot measure. The proposed constitutional amendment asks voters whether to impose a three-quarter-cent sales tax for roads and other transportation projects.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Opponents are planning to rally at the Missouri Capitol against a proposed amendment to the state Constitution establishing a “right to farm.” The question on the August 5th ballot asks voters whether the right “to engage in farming and ranching” should be “forever guaranteed” in the Missouri Constitution. Supporters say their goal is to protect and promote agriculture, but critics contend the measure will lead to lawsuits over what farming practices are permitted.
