SJR 13 - This proposed constitutional amendment submits a proposal to voters regarding funds obtained by the State as a result of any legal settlement or award resulting from a final order in a dispute between the state and tobacco companies. The proposal excludes the funds from the calculation of total state revenues and any refund of excess revenues, and designates that the money shall be deposited in the Missouri Healthy Families Trust Fund. The Fund shall be used solely for health care for, and research for cures of, tobacco-related diseases, tobacco- related prevention and cessation programs and to promote a safe and heathy environment for children.
