Good Gosh. Are there only two Rapid City Legislators that the Rapid City Journal Covers?

Senator Stan Adelstein is in the news again today. Not for fighting with Brock Greenfield. Not for Fighting with Bill Napoli. Not for the Mainstream Coalition. And not for being challenged by Elli Schwiesow (at least, not in this article).

In this second article by Celeste Calvitto, he’s putting his efforts behind a ballot measure to refer to a public vote the legislature’s ban on Abortion:
Sen. Stan Adelstein, R-Rapid City, opposed HB1215 and supports referring the measure to the November ballot. He said South Dakota voters “should have the chance to put this to bed once and for all.”

“The governor is a very thoughtful person,” Adelstein said. “But this controversy has to have the chance for a vote of the people. Petitions are already being drawn and will be circulated throughout the state.”

Adelstein said the effort will seek to prevent HB1215 from taking effect. Petitions for this type of ballot initiative must be filed within 90 days of the adjournment of the 2006 legislative session and contain 16,728 valid signatures of registered voters, according to the Secretary of State’s Web site. Lawmakers are scheduled to return March 20 to Pierre for the last day of the session, putting the deadline for petitions about Monday, June 19.
Read it all here. My question? Are we up to referred measure “R” yet? What happens when we get to “Z?” Do we start over again?

I think the next one would be AA, if it happened this year. Should we refer every bill to the people? Is this a republic or a democracy? Stan knows the people would not vote with him today,but give Planned Parenhood, People for the American Way,the ACLU, etc. a few months to spend millions and brainwash people, and they'll get sick of the issue, and want to support him.
