Ballot Measure Supporters Give Up Fight to Get on Ballot

SEPTEMBER 5, 2006 - Posted at 3:29 p.m. CDT

 

JEFFERSON CITY, MO - Supporters of two proposed constitutional amendments are giving their fight to get on the November ballot.

The secretary of state's office had rejected initiative petitions for proposals to limit government spending and restrict eminent domain.  A Cole County judge later upheld that decision. 

Both measures had been sponsored by the Group Missourians in Charge, which wanted to appeal to the Missouri Supreme Court. 

But the Supreme Court sent the cases back to the Western District appeals court.

Group organizer Patrick Tuohey says he interpreted that move to mean the high court wasn't too excited about his case.  He also says time was running out to make the November ballot.
