THE STORY:

Kansas is fed up!

A recent opinion survey conducted by Fort Hays State University shows that Kansas politicians are NOT representing the will of the people. http://ow.ly/M30uu

Twenty-seven of the states in America already have laws that allow its citizens the right to change legislation via state ballot initiatives and/or popular referendums. We have witnessed states like Colorado, Washington, Alaska, and Oregon successfully pass citizen initiatives over the past 3 years.

We don't have this right in Kansas. With your help we can change that!

An initiative is a law or constitutional amendment introduced by citizens through a petition process either to the legislature or directly to the voters. A popular referendum is a process by which voters may petition to demand a popular vote on a new law passed by the legislature.

Gaining these process rights will take passing an amendment to the Kansas state constitution. Constitutional amendments require 2/3 approval from both the house and senate and then a statewide ballot passage. The governor can NOT veto the passage of a constitutional amendment in this way.

The amendment process is said to be long and difficult and my guess is that many of our legislatures, our secretary of state, our attorney general, and our governor will be resistant to the idea because in essence they would be losing the "absolute" power they now enjoy.

We have a plan and this battle can be won. We invite other responsible citizen focused organizations to join forces in our effort to take our power back. In the meantime, we need your help to get this grassroots effort off the ground.

Our elected officials are not doing the job they were hired for, representing our rights and interests, so we must take action ourselves.
