FACTS ABOUT THE AMENDMENT 7

  • Provides an estimated $5.4 billion in funding for transportation projects over 10 years (2015-2025)
  • The measure provides that 90 percent of the revenue, an estimated $480 million annually, will go toward state transportation initiatives. Ten percent, or an estimated $54 million annually, will be split among cities and counties for transportation projects.
  • The sales tax increase will not be applied to purchases of medicine, groceries and gasoline.
  • State fuel taxes will not increase and toll roads will not be implemented over the 10-year time period.
  • The sales tax revenues can be used for ANY transportation purpose (road and bridge improvements, urban and rural transit, friendlier bike and pedestrian accommodations, improvements in rail, ports and airports).
  • Every region will prioritize the projects to meet the direct transportation needs of residents and businesses in their communities.
  • The regional project priority lists will be completed in June. A statewide list will be presented to the MHTC for its approval at a meeting in Jefferson City on July 9.
