Edit: Legislature Shouldn’t Defy Voters

Editorial: Will the Republican majority in the Idaho Legislature reject the words of President Abraham Lincoln, who described the nation’s system as “government of the people, by the people and for the people” in his famous Gettysburg Address? Will Republican legislators rebuke the members of the public who elected them by resuscitating education-reform laws that voters overturned overwhelmingly in a statewide referendum in November? And, will they change another law to make it more difficult for voters to challenge the decisions of the Legislature? The stage is set for both to happen, but neither should/Idaho Mountain Express (Sun Valley). More here.

Question: Have you contacted your district legislators to warn them not to mess with the initiative/referendum process and not to be part of reviving the Luna Laws?
