Idaho Representative predicts three or four measures on 2010 ballot
BOISE, Idaho: So far, there is one legislatively-referred constitutional amendment set to be placed on the November 2, 2010 ballot in the state, but Representative Erik Simpson thinks there may be more to come to the ballot. Simpson believes that not only will more amendments be placed on the ballot, but they will all pass.
According to Simpson: "History is on our side and typically voters pass constitutional amendments. The last one that failed was in 1984." The State Affairs Committee planned to vote on proposed measures during this week. If the committee approves any of the measures, they would then be placed before the House and the Idaho State Senate where they would have to be approved by a two-thirds vote by both chambers. If that occurs, the measure, or measures, would be sent to the November ballot. One of the measures that is being proposed is the Idaho Power Amendment which was proposed by Simpson.
