ballot initiative approved joint custody

A ballot initiative in Massachusetts approved equal legal and physical custody of children whose parents are divorced.

Instead of relying on the Nebraska legislature, let's get the signatures and put the issue in front of the voters ourselves!

If I recall correctly you need 10% of registered voters. That is 10% of
*all* registered voters - think Chicago where they voted the graveyard
rolls and you'll get an idea of what that means - I believe it works out
to 23% of current, living people who can actually sign. I think the rules
also state that its 10% in every district, not 10% overall, so you're
going to be canvassing in all 94 counties. Robert Watson should fill in
the details on this for us.

I'm not so sure this is a good trend for Nebraska - I don't dispute the
goal in this case, but look at the mess direct democracy has made in
California. Instead of a legislature managing things they have gridlock
and legacy mob rule in perpetuity.
