Re: John Matsusaka

John Matsusaka, director of the Initiative and Referendum Institute, was quoted on the effectiveness of ballot measures for enacting conceptual issues compared to regulatory issues. “In my mind, ballot propositions are good for conceptual issues—do you want to limit your property taxes, or do you want to have the death penalty or not,” Matsusaka said. “I don’t think it’s good for detailed regulatory structures.”
