I don’t think this is anything for us to be concerned about. The total impact to the Blind Pension Fund is estimated to be $1200 per year--so you would subtract the $1200 from the approximately $22 million or so that will be collected for the fund. If you were to divide the $1200 by the approximately 3500 people who get pension money, the impact per person is about thirty-four cents per year or less than two cents per month.

Subject: [Missouri-l] Fw: Blind Pension
Here is a proposed amendment to the MO Constitution that will be on the November ballot. I was not aware of it until today. Since it mentions the Blind Pension Fund, I thought you would find it interesting if you had not heard of it. It doesn't appear that it would have a particularly devastating effect on the fund but I wondered if we should be concerned about that and if MCB has any position on it.
CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT NO. 2
Proposed by the 95th General Assembly (First Regular
Session) HJR 15
Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to
require that all real property used as a homestead by
Missouri citizens who are former prisoners of war and have a
total service-connected disability be exempt from property
The number of qualified former prisoners of war and
the amount of each exemption are unknown, however,
because the number who meet the qualifications is expected
to be small, the cost to local governmental entities should be
minimal. Revenue to the state blind pension fund may be
reduced by $1,200.
