Activist Fights Proposed Amendments

A vocal gadfly who convinced the Idaho Supreme Court to stop Boise from building an airport parking garage is now fighting to kill three proposed constitutional amendments aimed at undermining his efforts. David Frazier wants voters this Nov. 2 to reject measures that would let local governments enter longterm debt agreements without holding an election, provided that taxpayers aren't on the hook to pay off the debt. Frazier is convinced officials are grabbing for power and cutting out voters with these amendments, which have support of Idaho cities and counties, the Idaho Hospital Association, utilities and economic development groups/John Miller, Associated Press.

Question: Did you have any understanding of the proposed constitutional amendments on the Idaho ballot before reading this article?
