Of the 45 states whose legislatures hold sessions in 2010, 27 of them have adjourned for the year, and 5 more will wrap up before the end of the month. Of the more than 80 bills dealing with the initiative and referendum process in various states, 51 of them would have reduced citizens’ initiative rights. Thanks to the work of activists in our coalitions, only 3 bills reducing citizen’s rights have passed and become law.

To those of you who were able to make it to Tortilla Coast and help us celebrate our West Coast expansion, thank you. We were able to wish Amanda well as she heads to California to expand our role in making the initiative & referendum process more open & accessible from coast to coast.

Make sure to stay tuned for updates on our new adventures in California and if you haven’t already, signed up to attend the 2010 U.S. Conference on Initiative & Referendum. Registration is FREE!

Join us tonight to celebrate the expansion of Citizens in Charge’s West Coast network supporting citizen rights.

Our Executive Director Amanda Roman will be moving to California later this month to put a Citizens in Charge presence in the state and region. This move is a great opportunity for us to expand and protect citizen initiative rights from coast to coast.
