did not make the November 6, 2012 general election ballot
in the state of Massachusetts
as an initiated state statute
. The measure was filed by John Toby Knudsen and was assigned initiative number 11-31
. The proposal would create a new exception to state law that prohibits the secret recording of an oral or wire communication.
Path to the ballot
Backers needed to collect 68,911 signatures by the December 7, 2011 petition drive deadline. The measure did not submit signatures by that deadline.
