Tally shows special session to be a ‘slim shot’

A July 16 special session seems unlikely according to figures posted Monday by the secretary of state’s office, showing 19 Republicans reject the proposal so far, cutting into the majority needed to hold such a meeting. Several republican legislators attempted to call a special session to interfere with two citizen ballot initiatives, I-185 and I-186, they don’t agree with. It would be a complete waste of taxpayer money and the definition of government overreach.

Supporters of the initiatives say lawmakers should let the voters decide and accused lawmakers of bowing to special interest groups.
