Jefferson City, Mo. – Attorney General Joshua Hawley announced today that his office has appealed the federal district court's judgment in the Amendment 2 case. That judgment invalidates portions of Missouri’s Constitutional Amendment 2 that impose restrictions on political campaign contributions. Amendment 2 was approved by nearly 70 percent of the voters in November 2016.

​“As Attorney General, I have a duty to defend the laws and constitution of the State of Missouri," Hawley said. "The people of Missouri overwhelmingly voted to place these rules in our constitution, and my office will defend them."
