What you need to know:

  • This Bill may be out before June, when the committee’s term ends, which would then allow a million signatures to be collected to kickstart the process.
  • Senate Minority Leader, James Orengo, who has been leading calls for a referendum, supported the plan.
  • The BBI team will also have to answer the question on what becomes of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.

The Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Steering Committee plans to release a draft referendum Bill before the full report that will recommend administrative and policy changes.
