JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Two proposals on Missouri's August ballot are attracting millions of dollars of campaign spending.
Finance reports show supporters of a transportation tax already have spent $2.5 million and have nearly $1.7 million available for their final push.
A proposal creating a constitutional right to farm also has spawned a somewhat closer financial battle.
Missouri Farmers Care has spent nearly $800,000 in support of the Aug. 5 ballot proposal while Missouri's Food for America has spent more than $400,000 opposing it.
