  • Initiative and Referendum Law
    • Currently there is no initiative or referendum available in Maryland. An alternative is Legislative referendum which is possible in all states ([here for list]), is when the state legislatures, an elected official, state appointed constitutional revision commission or other government agency or department submits propositions (constitutional amendments, statutes, bond issues, etc.) to the people for their approval or rejection. Every state requires that constitutional amendments proposed by the legislature be submitted to the citizenry via legislative referendum for approval or rejection. Legislative amendments (LA) are possible in Tennessee, and are constitutional amendments placed on the ballot by the legislature or governmental body. This includes constitutional bond issues and amendments proposed by a constitutional revision commission.[[1]] Legislative statues (LS) are binding and non-binding statutes (laws) and statutory bonds placed on the ballot by the legislature or government body.
