Fiscal conservatives have some wins that we can point to in state referenda:
New Hampshire passed a referendum by a 57 to 43 margin to amend the state constitution to prohibit the imposition of an income tax.
Michigan voters defeated an initiative with 59 percent voting 'no' that would amend the state constitution to permanently make it a forced unionization state (i.e., prohibit the enactment of a right to work law). Michigan voters also defeated a constitutional amendment to unionize home health care workers (with 58 percent voting 'no') and defeated a constitutional amendment with 63 percent voting 'no' to require 25 percent of electricity to come from renewable sources by 2025.
Admittedly, one has to dig very deep in yesterday's results to come up with any good news. Thought I would bring these two nuggets to your attention.
