Ballot petition time

While it may be the height of local election season for 2011, you may have been stopped by signature collectors outside of stores for initiatives for the statewide ballot in 2012. Curious about what they’re collecting for? Here’s the list:

112242: PET A: Medical Use of Marijuana (LAW)

112243: PET B: Promoting Excellence in Public Schools (LAW)

112244: PET C: Limiting Amount Water and Sewer Rates May Be Raised (LAW)

112245: PET D: Repeal Mandate Providing Access to Quality Health Care (LAW)

112246: PET E: Do Not Call List to Regulate Certain Charitable Solicitations (LAW)

112257: PET F: Provision of Health Insurance (CON AMEND) (note—it’s in for the 2014 election since it’s a constitutional amendment)

112255: PET G: Death with Dignity (LAW)

112247: PET H: Updating the Bottle Bill (LAW)

112256: PET I: Create a Citizens’ 9/11 Investigation Commission (LAW)
