A trust fund to keep Missouri's State buildings in working order will be created if voters approve Constitutional Amendment number three on the November ballot.
K-B-I-A's Tracy Sadeghian has more from Jefferson City.
This ballot issue would create a separate trust fund for maintaining, repairing and renovating Missouri's State Buildings.
The Facilities Maintenance Reserve Fund would get its money from one-percent of the State's general revenue fund.
Mexico Senator Joe Maxwell is a strong supporter of the measure. He says Missouri's buildings need attention...
Maxwell says funding Missouri's buildings has been neglected...
Maxwell says creating the Facilities Maintenance Fund also makes economic sense...
Bridges and highways will not be covered by the fund.
So far, no groups have opposed this ballot issue.
