JEFFERSON CITY, Missouri: Last week, Secretary of State Robin Carnahan announced that he is appealing a court decision made last month, in which the ballot summary for an initiative limiting affirmative action programs in the state was struck down. According to the judge's ruling, the ballot summary was "unfair" and "inadequate." However, since the court ruling, initiative supporters announced that they will be submitting a new version of the initiative, in another attempt to get the measure on the November 2010 ballot.[1]
