ST. LOUIS, MO (KFTK) - The organization behind 'Better Together' has withdrawn its petition to merge St. Louis City and County. 

Unite STL announced today that it will be withdrawing the petition to merge city and county due to current Missouri law that limits their ability to make the necessary changes. 

Better Together has faced multiple setbacks since its initial release.
