PATSY R. BRUMFIELD: Do legislators really know better?

Initiative 42 could never take away the Legislature’s power to appropriate tax revenue.

But goodness, these know-all legislators who supported the trick alternative say, what’s this wording about a chancery court enforcing the law? Apparently, it’s needed because the Legislature has somehow evaded paying the bill they promised 18 years ago. Do you and I get to evade any laws when we feel like it?

And so, we look forward to the debate about Initiative 42 and in explaining how the Legislature managed to muck up the ballot for you in November with a phony alternative.
