What passage means:

Reaction to Amendment 3:

"We're very excited. It's a great opportunity to keep the American dream alive. We are grateful Missouri voters came out in full force, committed to no transfer taxes." —  Elizabeth Mendenhall, president of the Missouri Association of Realtors

"Being able to know Missouri had taken upon themselves to say, 'We don't want double taxation in the form of transfer taxes,' is just exciting." — Kenney Hubble, president of Columbia Board of Realtors

Voter opinions about Amendment 3:

“I know lots of states (have real estate transfer taxes), and I think it’s just pretty extreme. We’re already taxed quite a bit, and I just think one more tax is really kind of over the top. I just think it is one more tax we don’t need. We have a tax-and-spend government as it is.” — Brian Gardner, 49, funeral director

“The one thing that kind of snuck on (the ballot) was the one about increasing or adding property tax, or reducing or eliminating the government’s ability to tax, which is nonsensical.” — Mark Singer, 50, graduate student in history
