Earlier this week Catholic Citizenship (which finally seems like it might be in the hands of peeps who takes the job seriously) sent out an alert on some pretty scary shenanigans up at the State House:
In a highly controversial move, the Joint Judiciary Committee gave a favorable report to Senate Bill 23 filed by Cynthia Creem. This bill is a proposed constitutional amendment that would prohibit initiative petitions on “The rights to freedom and equality; the right of each individual to be protected by society in the enjoyment of life, liberty and property, according to standing laws.”
In essence, no initiative petition would ever go forward since all petitions touch on some aspect of life, liberty or property.
Cynthia Creem. What a piece of work she is, eh?
A little backlash and the bullet was dodged today.
Heh. We finally found something they are not willing to do.
