The Massachusetts Prohibit Deployment of State National Guard Initiative may appear on the November 4, 2014 ballot in Massachusetts as an initiated state statute. The measure would prohibit the Governor from deploying the Massachusetts National Guard outside the state, except for defense of the state or to provide temporary emergency assistance to other states during natural disasters.[1]

Petitioners did not turn in signatures to the Office of the Secretary of State by November 20, thus eliminating the measure's chances of appearing on the ballot in 2014.[2]

Following, supporters had until November 20, 2013 to obtain and submit 68,911 signatures. Petitioners failed to turn in signatures to the Office of the Secretary of State by the deadline.[2]
