Initiatives (2021)

Support for a change in the Maryland Constitution to allow voters the right to petition for a statutory and or a Constitutional amendment through the initiative process.

A direct initiative process is the preferred method; however, an indirect initiative process could also be supported.

In preparing enabling legislation, the following practices should be taken into consideration:

1. Transparency;

2. Single subject;

3. Number and distribution of signatures;

4. Fiscal implications;

5. Oversight of title, summary and constitutionality of the initiative;

6. Higher number of signatures for Constitutional initiative.
