The Missouri Western District Court of Appeals has ruled that the Missouri ACLU’s initiative petition to reverse the anti-abortion HB 126 can move forward in the process.
A statement issued by State Auditor Nicole Galloway (D):
The Missouri State Auditor’s Office today released a statement regarding action by the Missouri Western District Court of Appeals. An opinion, issued today, compels Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft and Attorney General Eric Schmitt to perform their duties under the law on a proposed referendum related to HB 126, which was signed into law by Gov. Mike Parson on May 24. The State Auditor’s Office announced on June 7 that work on the fiscal note and fiscal note summary was moving forward.
“Even as this issue has been working through the courts, the Missouri State Auditor’s Office has continued our work to complete the fiscal note and fiscal note summary. As is clear in the opinion, the State Auditor’s Office fulfilled its obligation under the law. Auditor Galloway believes Missourians deserve to be heard.”
