  • Missouri lawmakers are referring to the ballot a constitutional amendment, SJR 27, that supporters say will boost electronic privacy protections.
    The state constitution currently protects Missourians' "persons, papers, homes and effects" from unreasonable searches and seizures. The proposed constitutional amendment would add their "electronic communications and data" to that.
    House members approved the measure 114-28 on Friday. It passed the Senate 31-1 last month and will appear on the November ballot unless Gov. Jay Nixon picks a different date.
