Montana’s main mining lobby is asking the state Supreme Court to halt efforts to qualify a clean-water initiative for the November ballot, saying the proposed measure has an improper effective date.

The Montana Mining Association filed a petition late last Friday that asked the Montana Supreme Court to declare Initiative 186 “legally insufficient” and stop any signature-gathering until the error is corrected.
