Ballot Issues Forum
Thursday, July 24
6:30 p.m. (refreshments at 6:00 p.m.)
Columbia Public Library – Friends Room

The August primary ballot will include five proposed constitutional amendments:
–the so-called “Right to Farm” measure;
–an amendment that concerns the people’s “Right to be secure in their electronic communications and data from unreasonable searches and seizures”;
–an amendment that creates a “Veterans Lottery Ticket” to raise funds for projects and services related to veterans;
–an amendment that would declare the right to keep and bear arms as an unalienable right that the state must uphold; and
–a three-quarters of a cent sales tax to fund state and local highways, roads and bridges.

We will try to find pro and con speakers on all issues; if we cannot find speakers, we will provide pro and con information.

Both forums are cosponsored by the Columbia Public Library.
