Current Bill Summary


SJR 36 - Currently, the Missouri Constitution provides that the schedule of compensation filed by the Missouri Citizens' Commission on the Compensation of Elected Officials will become effective unless disapproved by a concurrent resolution adopted by two-thirds of the General Assembly prior to February 1 of the year after the schedule is filed. This constitutional amendment, if approved by the voters, provides that any schedule of compensation filed by the commission shall be deemed ineffective unless it is approved by a majority vote of the General Assembly prior to such date. Also, the schedule of compensation for judges must be considered separate and apart from the schedule of compensation for other public officials, and shall require a separate majority vote of the General Assembly in order to be effective.

This SJR is identical to SJR 6 (2009) and SJR 19 (2007).
