All statewide ballot proposals pass, Metro tax fails in St. Louis County

St. Louis – There were many issues on the ballot Tuesday. Missourians approved Proposition A, which removes the loss limit for gamblers at the state's casinos and boosts funding for public schools.

English will be the official language of governmental proceedings in Missouri after voters overwhelmingly passed Amendment 1.

Measures on storm water project financing, home health care and alternative energy also passed.

However in St. Louis county, voters narrowly rejected a half-cent sales tax for the transit agency Metro.
