Proposed Initiatives to the People - 2008

The following is a list of proposed initiatives to the Legislature filed to date with the Office of the Secretary of State. To be certified, a petition must contain the signatures totaling of at least eight (8) percent of the number of legal votes cast for Governor in the most recent gubernatorial election*.

*That number is currently 224,880 but will change after the 2008 election.


Initiative numbers are not assigned until the proposal has been reviewed by the state Code Reviser and the sponsor has submitted the final language of the proposed initiative. The content of initiatives is described as general "subject matter" pending the issuance of an official ballot title and summary by the state Attorney General.
