Carnahan Statement Regarding SB 464 Ballot Summary Ruling
Jefferson City, MO - Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan released the following statement today regarding the court ruling on the ballot summary for SB 464:
“We are disappointed by today’s ruling. The Secretary of State's office has a legal obligation to provide Missourians with fair and sufficient summaries of ballot measures. We still believe our summary meets that legal standard. The court’s summary would provide Missouri voters with less information about the impact of the proposal and how Missouri individuals, families and small businesses can access affordable health care.
Our office is reviewing the decision to consider our next steps.”
