Direct Democracy Measures
|Not on ballot|
|Ballot Law Update|
The measure is sponsored by Voters for Fair Use of Ballot Referendum.
- Bill Lucas, founder Voters for Fair Use of Ballot Referendum, argues that the amendment is needed because, "Politicians are adding token amounts of spending into otherwise non-budgetary laws in order to keep them referendum-proof. This is side-stepping voters’ rights that have been in our constitution for 100 years."
