Opinion No. (2011) ( 2011 )

  • Dear Secretary Carnahan:

    This opinion letter responds to your request dated November 30, 2011, for our review under § 116.332, RSMo, of the sufficiency as to form of an initiative petition submitted by Theodis Brown.

    We conclude that the petition must be rejected for at least the following reasons:

    1. The petition is not in the form prescribed by § 116.040, RSMo.

    2. The petition does not contain "all matter which is to be deleted included in its proper place enclosed in brackets and all new matter shown underlined" as required pursuant to § 116.050, RSMo.

    Because of our rejection of the form of the petition for the reasons stated above, we have not reviewed the petition to determine if additional deficiencies exist. Pursuant to § 116.332.3, RSMo, the Secretary of State is authorized to review this opinion and "make a final decision as to the approval or rejection of the form of the petition."

    Very truly yours, CHRIS KOSTER Attorney General
