Montanans will also be deciding two citizen-proposed ballot measures
In addition to high profile races for U.S. Senate and Governor, Montanans will also be deciding two citizen-proposed ballot measures. One puts medical marijuana reform passed by the 2011 Legislature up for a public vote. The other places a nonbinding state directive that corporations are not people. The 2011 State Legislature is also putting three measures up to a public vote regarding abortion, immigration, and the Affordable Care Act. This program provides clear information from both sides of these measures. Viewers will also learn about the history of the citizen-passed initiative in Montana and how the process works today.
