A statement just released from State Senator Fred Risser clarifies any rumor that Risser would support a Constitutional Amendment eliminating the Office of Secretary of State, or further weakening said office. A portion of the statement reads:
“To suggest that I am leading the movement to do away with the office is misleading and simply inaccurate.” Risser concluded.
Last session, a similar proposal (2009 Senate Joint Resolution 26) was referred to Senator Risser’s committee for consideration. That proposal was not reported out.
