Petition Drive for Part Time Legislature Can Proceed

Lead in text: 
Over 322,000 signatures are required by July 7th to put proposal on the November ballot
The part-time Legislature petition would cut legislative sessions to 60 days a year and cut lawmakers pay in about half to $35,000 a year. It also would require that any amendments and substitutes to proposed bills would have to be published and held for five days before the Legislature could vote on the bills.
