Senate Bill 59 has been filed – one of the first initiated measure reform measures from individual legislators to try to fix the grand mess that we’ve been going through over the past several cycles.

One thought on “First Initiated Measure reform bill from individual legislators filed

  1. Platonic

    Section 2 seems a little broad. Would this add a single-subject rule to the initiative process? Would it make initiatives veto-able by the Governor? Could initiatives be referred before they even go into effect, thereby making ballot measures take years to become enacted?

    This will probably just spur more out-of-state money groups to focus on constitutional amendments, which have their own enunciated protections – shame.
