JEFFERSON CITY — Residents across Missouri will be voting on about 230 local tax and bond issues in the April elections.

The tally of ballot measures comes from Americans for Prosperity, a group that advocates for lower taxes and limited government.

The election list includes local sales and use taxes, property taxes and bond issues being proposed by counties, cities, school boards and fire and ambulance services.

Patrick Werner, who is the Missouri director of Americans for Prosperity, says tax and bond issues will go before voters in about 85 percent of the state's counties. He says the number of local revenue issues should give pause to state lawmakers who also are considering a transportation sales tax and a nearly $1 billion bonding plan.
