Current Bill Summary


SJR 34 - This proposed constitutional amendment, if approved by the voters, would require that all impeachments be tried by the Senate, rather than before the Missouri Supreme Court. When the Governor is being tried, the Chief Justice of the Missouri Supreme Court shall preside. No person shall be convicted without a two-thirds vote of all Senators present.

This amendment is identical to SJR 9 (2013) and HJR 82 (2010).
