A group seeking to place a proposed constitutional amendment on the ballot next year to ban racial and gender preferences in state hiring, education and contracting practices sued Secretary of State Robin Carnahan on July 26 over the ballot language her office drafted for the measure.

The American Civil Rights Institute, which has pursued similar measures in other states, claims the language provided by Carnahan’s office is biased in opposition to the proposal. The suit was filed in Cole County Circuit Court. Supporters still must gather a sufficient number of initiative petition signatures in order for the proposal to go on the November 2008 ballot.
