North Dakota Measure 4, also known as the Referral and Initiative Reform Amendment, is a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment in North Dakota that will be decided in the general election on November 4, 2014. The measure would require that initiated measures estimated to have a significant fiscal impact be placed on the general election ballot. The measure also would prohibit all initiated constitutional amendments that would make a direct appropriation of public funds for a specific purpose.[1]

Path to the ballot

Section 16 of Article IV of the North Dakota Constitution very simply says, "Any amendment to this constitution may be proposed in either house of the legislative assembly, and if agreed to upon a roll call by a majority of the members elected to each house, must be submitted to the electors and if a majority of the votes cast thereon are in the affirmative, the amendment is a part of this constitution."
