Kander Announces Initiative Petition Amending Chapters 290 and 67 of the Revised Statutes of Missouri is Open for Public Comment

April 2, 2015

Jefferson City, Mo. — Secretary of State Jason Kander today announced his office received an initiative petition amending Chapters 290 and 67 of the Revised Statutes of Missouri, and the initiative petition is now open for public comment. Petition 2016-035 was submitted by Gary (Winston) Apple. Missourians can provide public comment at http://www.sos.mo.gov/comment.

The 30-day public comment period allows Missourians to offer their observations on the submitted proposal online, by mail or phone.

Before circulating petitions for signatures, state law requires that groups must first have the form of their petition approved by the secretary of state’s office. The office then has 23 days after the form of the petition is approved to draft ballot summary language. During this time, the office will review all comments.

In his first month in office, Kander instituted the public comment process, which included posting the proposed initiative petition online as soon as its form was approved, to make the process more accessible and transparent for Missourians. This process has been expanded to post the petition within 24 hours after it is received by the office to provide a greater opportunity for Missourians to provide comments on the proposed initiative.
