Office of the Missouri Secretary of State Statement Regarding SB 464
Jefferson City, MO - The Secretary of State's office has a legal obligation to provide Missourians with fair and sufficient summaries of ballot measures. We believe our summary of SB 464 meets that legal standard.
Although we strongly disagree with the decision by the Cole County Circuit Court, this office is not in a position to appeal the decision on its own. We are disappointed that Attorney General Koster has refused our request to file an appeal.
The new summary language is incomplete, uninformative and a disservice to Missouri voters who must decide on the critical issue of how and when Missouri individuals, families and small businesses will have access to affordable health care.
