I have a couple questions for our Utah House and Senate leadership regarding citizen initiatives, as voted on by citizens.

Since when did initiatives become a non-traditional legislative process to be appropriately balanced with a more traditional process? Does not the state Constitution allow its citizens to initiate the legislative process?

When I voted for Propositions 2 and 3, I voted in favor of them, fully expecting them to become law as written.

I did not vote for them in order to be helpful and let you know what I'm thinking and then have the Legislature completely disregard the will of my vote. I can accomplish that by writing a letter to The Salt Lake Tribune.
