Forwarded from an e-mail sent by Leanne Fritsch:

"Governor Nixon has just signed SB113 which repeals Prop B. The "compromise" being voted on today was contingent on SB113 not becoming law so MAAL and HSMO should no longer be supporting the compromise. IF SB161 ("compromise") passes we will not be able to take Prop B back to the voters. Tell your MO state rep to VOTE NO ON SB161. The opponents of Prop B can't wait to get this compromise passed while those of us fighting for Prop B don't want it passed---what does that tell you? If SB161 passes the millers will win.
Share with everyone ASAP."
