League of Women Voters Opposes Proposed Initiative Petition Reforms

Nancy Copenhaver, Vice President of the League of Women Voters of Missouri, says the League is opposed to all of the proposed initiative petition reform proposals that were heard in a Missouri House committee last week.

She says there’s also a practical reason not to require a majority of Congressional districts or legislative districts to approve an amendment.

Copenhaver says the League has a proposal to allow voters to keep their say, without voters continually adding new things to the state Constitution.

Copenhaver says there is a bill filed to do that, but doesn’t think it will get far in the Legislature. She was our guest Tuesday on KWIXLand This Morning.
