5. In investigating violations of this chapter the secretary of state and any local law enforcement officials shall refrain from any conduct which has the possibility of affecting the conduct or outcome of an election. No investigations of alleged violations of this chapter by the secretary of state or local law enforcement officials shall occur prior to an election and subpoenas requested prior to an election shall be issued only if sufficient evidence exist that information or documents sought under the subpoena will be unavailable after the election.

6. Upon the order of a court of competent jurisdiction, the secretary of state shall have the right to access records that are closed under this chapter or under chapter 610 if such records are necessary for the conduct of an investigation under this section.".

MESSAGES FROM THE GOVERNOR

The following proclamation was received from the Governor, reading of which was waived:

Office of the Governor

State of Missouri

Proclamation

WHEREAS, during 2001 all major national forecasters envisioned an economy that would begin growing again during the last half of the year and continue with substantial growth during 2002; and

WHEREAS, instead of growing, the economy officially went into recession in April 2001, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research, which recession continues; and

WHEREAS, as a result of the recession and its effects, Missouri and the other states in our nation are struggling through difficult economic times, as demonstrated by the fact that the National Association of State Budget Officers' reports that Fiscal Year 2002 budget shortfalls totaling approximately $40 billion dollars exist in 40 states, the National Conference of State Legislatures reports that at least 37 states and the District of Columbia face potential budget gaps in Fiscal Year 2003, and at least 25 states other than Missouri are using budget reserves in response to budget shortfalls; and

WHEREAS, the Missouri unemployment rate increased to 5.3% in January of 2002 from 4.4% in April 2001, when the recession began, and over 67,500 more Missourians were unemployed in January 2002 than in April 2001, resulting in less tax revenue to the states and an increase in needs for state services among the unemployed and their families; and

WHEREAS, since the terrorist attacks of September 11, economic recovery has been slower and weaker than expected, thereby exacerbating the recession; and

WHEREAS, measures related to homeland security after the attacks of September 11 will cost state and local governments millions of dollars for programs not covered by federal funding; and

WHEREAS, the U.S. Congress passed H.R. 1836, The Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001, which will reduce Missouri revenue collections by $21.1 million in Fiscal Year 2002 and by $41.6 million in Fiscal Year 2003; and

WHEREAS, State revenue collections have failed to keep pace with consensus revenue estimates that are agreed upon by the Governor's office and members of the House of Representatives and the Senate, and on which budgets have been built to address programs required by state and federal legislation and to respond to the pressures of a growing and aging population, to wit:

WHEREAS, $536 million in budget cuts and withholdings in the Fiscal Year 2002 budget have eliminated or reduced funding throughout the budget, making additional cuts in the core budget very difficult, which cuts and withholdings include:

WHEREAS, in Fiscal Year 2003 the Governor has recommended $480 million in general revenue core reductions; and

WHEREAS, these core reductions include elimination of entire programs and reductions of 25 percent or more for other programs; and

WHEREAS, failing to provide additional funds by utilizing the budget reserve fund will require eliminating additional programs critical to the health, safety, and welfare of Missouri's most vulnerable citizens, including children, the elderly, and people with physical and mental disabilities; and

WHEREAS, the very purpose of the budget reserve fund, commonly known as the rainy day fund, as approved by the votes of this State, is to provide funds that the State can use in a time of great need, whether that need is occasioned by natural disaster, an economic downturn, or other circumstances, so that the State of Missouri has the ability to weather an economic storm; and

WHEREAS, the Constitution requires that the Governor declare an emergency so that the General Assembly may appropriate funds from the Budget Reserve Fund.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Bob Holden, Governor of the State of Missouri, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and Laws of the State of Missouri, including Article III, section 27(a) of the Missouri Constitution and sections 44.010 to 44.130, RSMo, do hereby proclaim that an emergency exists in the State of Missouri as a result of the current economic conditions that prevail in the state of Missouri and the nation, which constitute a disaster of major proportions.
