Ballot initiative resolution sent for amendment

Senators listened to more than two hours of opposing testimony

After all but two of about 40 individuals testified Wednesday against its passage, the Senate State Affairs Committee of the Idaho Legislature voted to amend a joint resolution to put a question on the ballot that would change Idaho’s constitutional process for ballot initiatives. Many others signed up to testify in opposition, but the committee ran out of time to hear them all. At the end of two hours of public testimony, Senate Majority Leader Kelly Anthon, R-Burley, said as he looked at the language of the resolution, he had “a couple of concerns about it” and thought it should be sent to the amending order, a process where bills often get stuck for the rest of the session.
