Trib: Why is HJR 5 attracting big $$$?

In his Lewiston Tribune editorial this AM, Opinion Editor Marty Trillhaase spotlight "innocuous" HJR 5:

Whatever else it is, House Joint Resolution 5 is not some obscure, innocuous, good-government housekeeping measure offered up by a benevolent Legislature looking out for the good of us all. If all it does is put a necessary comma here, clean up some clunky language there, you would not have political bagmen stuffing $107,000 into a campaign to convince the electorate to approve such a minor, technical and nonthreatening measure. More here.

Question: Do you think legislative leaders and their well-heeled handlers are trying to pull a fast one with HJR 5?
