KC Light Rail

Your source for news and information on Kansas City’s light rail progress

You were warned: Chastain returns…

…with another legal challenge of the City Council's repeal of the 2006 initiative voters approved and Chastain spearheaded. Laugh if you want, but there is actually an important legal question that would benefit from a higher ruling: whether or not the Council's chartered ability to repeal a citizen initiative after passage is in conflict with the state constitution.

Chastain had threatened that he would continue his legal challenge if the vote on the city-backed plan failed. That way, he reasoned, KC residents could get light rail either way.

    Maybe voters will read what they vote for from now on.Just think we could have light rail and less bus service because they didn’t read the whole ballot.
