Obamacare Language Delays Missouri Ballots

Squabble over wording runs up against a printing deadline


A squabble over a November ballot initiative has delayed printing amid a looming deadline to prepare the ballots for military and absentee voters.

Cole County Judge Daniel Green ruled Tuesday that ballots for the general election should not be printed until the resolution of a legal challenge over the language concerning a state health-care exchange. Green is scheduled to hear the case Aug. 28.
