A court ruling this Thursday means that Secretary of State Bekki Cook, and not the state legislature, will draft the language of April's concealed-weapons ballot question. Lee McGuire reports from Jefferson City.
At issue has been whether a committee of legislators -- which approved the bill in the first place -- gets to describe what it means to voters.
The court's answer was no.
But now, the Secretary of State Bekki Cook has uuntil just Tuesday to write the ballot description.
Cook says she plans to get the new ballot language to the Attorney General's office by the end of the day Friday. In Jefferson City, Lee McGuire, KMOX News.
