CONCORD, New Hampshire: New Hampshire could see a proposal on the November 2, 2010 ballot that would allow citizens to reject laws passed by the New Hampshire Legislature. According to the proposal of the measure, citizens could veto any laws by implementing a limited citizens' referendum process.[1]

The measure is sponsored by about a half dozen legislators. However, despite the voice that the measure would give to voters, it would only allow for residents to reject proposed state law, not institute it.
