Huffington Post

Assistant Professor of Political Science Craig Burnett was interviewed for the Huffington Post article, “State Legislatures Drag Their Feet On Voter-Approved Ballot Initiatives.” Although a number of progressive ballot measures were passed during the midterm elections, they have yet to be take effect. These include restoring voting rights to felons in Florida and implementing the medical marijuana law in Utah.

Professor Burnett said, “Ballot measures are often at odds with the preferences of lawmakers. After all, if lawmakers thought the policy was such a great idea, they would have enacted it themselves.”
