(Jefferson City) (AP) – Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster says he won’t appeal a judge’s decision rewriting the ballot summary of a health insurance proposal.

Koster confirmed Thursday that he refused a request from Democratic Secretary of State Robin Carnahan to challenge a ruling that her original ballot summary was unfair and insufficient. A Cole County judge ordered Carnahan to use a revised summary supported by Republicans.

Carnahan’s office described the new wording as incomplete and uninformative, but Koster says it more accurately reflects lawmakers’ intent.

The question will ask: “Shall Missouri law be amended to prohibit the Governor or any state agency, from establishing or operating state based health insurance exchanges unless authorized by a vote of the people or by the Legislature?”
