Dems Denounce Referendum Attack

House and Senate Democrats came out strongly against SB 1108 today, the bill proposed by the Idaho Farm Bureau Federation to make it tougher to qualify an initiative or referendum measure for the Idaho ballot. “This bill is part of a troubling trend that makes it easier for lawmakers and government officials to ignore the will of the people,” Sen. Michelle Stennett, D-Ketchum, the Senate minority leader, declared at a Statehouse press conference this morning. “Today, we call on Idahoans of all political affiliations to speak out against Senate Bill 1108”/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.
