Initiatives

October 26, 1994

It's about time for Californians to finally get mad enough to get rid of the law that allows (and invites) making law by referendum. How many initiatives on this year's ballot? I only know because I looked at my Voter's Guide, but it is too many.

Initiatives were supposed to give the people a last resort if the Legislature fails to act. It has become a game and a big business, with Californians the losers.

I will vote against every initiative on this year's ballot. I wish everyone else would too. Then, let's see a change in the state Constitution that raises the threshold. How about requiring both houses of the Legislature to have had a bill before them with the exact wording of a proposed initiative for one year before anyone can circulate a petition for it?
