Major kudos to former Attorney General and Supreme Court Justice Jim Jones for his efforts to fight the legislature’s attempt to deny Idaho citizens a voice.
KIVI, Channel 6 has a good story on Jone’s efforts to collect 16,000 signatures from folks opposed too SB1110 which has passed both Idaho houses and awaits action by Gov. Brad Little. Jones is urging Little to veto the law which would make it virtually impossible for citizens to place an initiative on the ballot without signatures from at least 6% of the voters in all the state legislative districts.
If signed into law, that means a lack of the 6% signature goal from any district would prevent any citizen proposal from ballot consideration.
