Gov. Jay Nixon would not be allowed to extend bonds to fund a new football stadium in St. Louis without a vote by legislators or citizens under a measure approved Thursday by the Missouri Senate.

The measure, which passed the Senate by a 26-5 vote, follows an earlier assertion by Nixon’s office that it didn’t need a vote to approve the extension of bonds for the St. Louis stadium project, which seeks to keep the Rams in St. Louis.
