Really only helped animal farmers and no one else
State questions: 777
Did not pass.
Penny tax for teachers and education. There was a fear that government would think they did something so they would stop helping education. Also fear that they would reduce other funds with the reason being that education was receiving this fund. Also people don't like taxes raised
State question: 776
federal law still trumps state law so it still says no to cruel and unusual punishment. We are a death penalty state and so this made it twice as hard to repeal it.
Bankruptcies due to medical bills
