Petition Signature Requirements

Bill Text: SCR14-005

Date Introduced: April 29, 2014

Sponsors: 1

Status: Postponed indefinitely

SCR 5 would have placed a referred measure on the fall ballot to require a geographic distribution of signatures for constitutional amendments. If enacted, it would have increased the cost of citizen initiatives and have allowed one part of the state to act as gatekeeper when the rest of the state wants to see something on the ballot. If lawmakers want to improve the initiative process, they should encourage the use of statutory citizen initiatives by protecting them from legislative changes.
