State and Local Initiative Process

$45 for MBA members | $70 non-members

The initiative process impacts all aspects of state and local policy, from taxes to education to civil rights. Over the past few election cycles, advocates increasingly have turned to the initiative to influence local, as well as statewide, policy. In this CLE, Katherine Thomas, Assistant County Attorney for Multnomah County, Steve Berman of Stoll Berne, and Oregon Supreme Court Justice Stephen K. Bushong, will discuss the state and local initiative process from three different perspectives - the governmental entity overseeing the process, the advocate seeking to advance or defeat an initiative, and the judiciary tasked with ensuring that process is applied consistently with the law.
