    It is about time we, the people, have a chance to pass a Constitutional amendment on this issue. We have approved an initiative requiring this many times. It is time the legislators listen to us and give us the opportunity to make it part of our Constitution. However, this bill is missing the other option that tax increases can also be passed by a majority vote of the voters as the initiatives have provided. Before I can support the bill, it needs this other option.

     The voters have insisted on it many times but each time the corrupt Legislature gets around it, so much for representative government, What I would add though is a simple majority to lower taxes!

    Rep. Haler is simply making the wish of the majority of voters a matter of law so that we don't have to continuously remind the legislature we are sick of their raising taxes through yearly initiatives. Thank you Rep. Haler!
