Honorable Claire C. McCaskill
Missouri State Auditor

Jefferson City, MO 65101
Dear Auditor McCaskill:
By letter dated May 29, 2001, you have submitted a fiscal note and fiscal note summary prepared pursuant to Section 116.175, RSMo, concerning the initiative petition proposal relating to votes required to pass a ballot for school indebtedness. The fiscal note summary which you submitted is as follows:
There are no costs associated with this proposal; however, additional local school bond elections could be successful due to the lowered majority required for passage.
Pursuant to Section 116.175, we approve the legal content and form of the fiscal note summary. Since our review of the fiscal note summary is mandated by statute, no action we take with respect to such review should be construed as an endorsement of the petition or as the expression of any view regarding the objectives of its proponents.
