Initiative Approved for Signatures on Legislature Equality

Posted: Updated:

A change to our state Constitution is now one step closer after Secretary of State Linda McCulloch approved signature gathering for a law that would require Legislature to be evenly split between genders.

To get this measure on the upcoming November ballot, John Marshall has until June 20th to gather over 48,000 voter signatures.

Marshall believes this would help law makers make better choices for Montana by better reflecting the public, which is close to half male-half female when it comes to gender.
