Statement on HJR14


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                 February 27, 2024


SALT LAKE CITY – Better Boundaries Executive Director Katie Wright issued the following statement on HJR14:

“We commend Senator Fillmore, Representative Kyle, and Senate Leadership for responding to the concerns of Utahns and their constituents and deciding against advancing HJR14, which proposed a 60% voter threshold on ballot initiatives. Amendments to the state constitution should be infrequent and approached with caution and care.

The ballot initiative process is fundamental to a democratic system and Better Boundaries will continue to work with voters and elected officials to safeguard the integrity of that process.”
