HCS HB 4 -- NOTIFICATION OF ELECTIONS (Kreider)

This substitute allows a political subdivision or local public
authority to place a question of imposing a tax, issuing bonds,
or approving any other issue arising from a newly enacted or
reenacted statute on the ballot if the election authority is
notified by the 4th Tuesday before the election.  A statewide
question of imposing a tax, issuing bonds, or approving any
other issue arising from a newly enacted or reenacted statute
may be placed on the ballot if the Secretary of State is
notified by the 5th Tuesday before the election.  A joint
resolution proposing a constitutional amendment or a special
election with respect to an issue referred to the people can
also be placed on the ballot if the Secretary of State is
notified by the 5th Tuesday before the election.

This substitute contains an emergency clause.

The bill, which repeals and reenacts the statute entitled notice
of election, when given--facsimile transmission used when, and
exceptions (section 115.125, RSMo Supp.), terminates on December
31, 1997.
