PAR Council says Amendments too Many
The Advocate reports that the Public Affairs Research (PAR) Council and Council for a Better Louisiana (CABL) have expressed concern that the number of constitutional amendments on the statewide election ballot this October is too many. Further, PAR Council President Jim Brandt notes that more and more proposed changes to the constitution are too detailed and should be written as laws, not locked into the state constitution, where they are hard to change in the future. The Advertiser also reports on the press conference and focusses on PAR and CABL's disagreement over whether a constitutional covention is necessary.
In an effort to aid voters, PAR offers detailed explanations of the amendments on its web site.Posted by AJR at September 9, 2003 07:37 AM | TrackBack
