SAINT LOUIS, MO., FEB 11, 2015 – A Missouri Supreme Court opinion yesterday stated that The Legislature May Not Repeal an Initiative in Whole or in Part in Advance of its Passage.  Using strong language, the opinion called out the constitutionally protected right of the people of Missouri to enact legislation by ballot initiative.  The case focused on Empire Electric, an investor owned utility in Southwest Missouri, which promoted legislation passed by the legislature in 2008 attempting to exempt Empire from being required to participate in a rebate program that was included in the ballot language of Proposition C.
