Sen. Hansen supports direct legislation laws 

A resolution designed to ultimately change the state constitution to allow for direct legislation to be passed through a state-wide referendum is being floated in Madison.  State Senator Dave Hansen, who has served 19 years for the 30th District, says Assembly Joint Resolution 32 could eventually lead to citizens initiating constitutional amendments and vetoes similar to Act 10 in Ohio.  Many states already have direct legislation laws in place, according to Hansen.



Sen. Hansen says the key is that when the legislature tends to ignore the will of the people, the people should have means to circumvent the legislature to make their voices heard.  He adds that a successful resolution would also address healthcare expansion, campaign finance reform, and medical marijuana that have public majority support with no state legislative action currently.
