Kander to take public comments on initiatives

January 26th, 2013 by David A. Lieb, Associated Press in News

Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander is giving the public a sneak peak at potential ballot initiatives and a chance to comment about them before the petition-gathering begins.

Kander said Friday initiatives submitted to his office will be posted online, and the public will have a five-day comment period before his office drafts summaries for the measures. The secretary of state's official summary is printed atop the petition pages that people sign and, if enough signatures are gathered, also appears on the ballot.

Kander, a Democrat, took office Jan. 14.
