Legislation to revive one of the most controversial pieces of voter-rejected Proposition 1 – letting Idaho school districts unilaterally impose contract terms if negotiations with their local teachers unions don’t lead to an agreement by June 10 – cleared the House today on a near-party-line vote, with just one Republican, Rep. Douglas Hancey, R-Rexburg, joining all 13 House Democrats in opposing it. HB 260, which passed on a 55-14 vote and now heads to the Senate side, would allow school districts to impose their “last best offer” if no agreement is reached by that point/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.

Question: Do you think these votes by GOP legislators in favor of thinly disguised Luna Laws elements will trigger another initiative/referendum? And/or: Isn't it time to quit voting for individuals who clearly have a distain for voter-approved initiatives and referendums?
