Initiative Curriculum Connection – Social Studies
Initiative and Referendum are forms of direct lawmaking that have been around since the 1600’s. Many times, an Initiative is started with a petition by a group of people advocating for the change they seek. When enough signatures are gathered, the petition is then presented to lawmakers to vote on in session or it can be placed on a ballot for the electorate to decided.
