In the last two citizen initiatives to pass into law in the state, the legislature did two things. They changed the law back to what is was prior to the initiative, and then made the citizen initiative harder to accomplish.

We, the citizens of our state, need to support Merrill in his effort to return our ability to be heard. Right now, we have a state legislature who believes they, not us the people, run this state. That needs fixed. Once again, Merrill is standing up for principles that are what good government "by the people" is actually founded upon.
