UPDATE: The Citizens' Initiative Review bill now has a bill number. It is HB 2895 and is available online here
Very big thanks to Sen. Whitsett and Rep. Cannon for signing on as Co-Chief sponsors of the CIR bill, as well as to the 23 legislators who signed on as Co-Sponsors including Senators Burdick, Devlin, Dingfelder, Monnes Anderson, Monroe, Morrisette, Morse, Walker, and Representatives Bailey Buckley, Clem, Edwards, Garrard, Garrett, Greenlick, Komp, Nathanson, Olson, Shaufler, Shields, Smith, VanOrman, and Witt. A hearty thank you to the staff of these legislators for all of their assistance over the last two months as well.
While we are excited to now have a bill number, and pleased with the brevity of the bill itself, there are some important omissions to the bill that will require amendments once the bill receives a hearing (a few important pieces are missing). We'll keep you posted and send out an announcement about HB 2895 and some next steps very soon. Stay tuned.
