2008 Senate Bill 1087: Impose restrictions on citizen’s initiative signature gathering
  1. Introduced by Sen. Mark Jansen (R) on February 12, 2008, to require circulators of petitions placing Constitutional amendments, initiated laws, or referendums on the ballot, to live in the jurisdiction where the signatures are collected. In other words, a person would be prohibited from gathering signatures outside the community in which he or she resides.
