This Initiatives Amendment or Representatives Pledge is a written promise by legislators, representatives, members, and candidates for State Legislature and Congressional offices that commits their support. An up-to-date Internet list of their pledges or lack thereof will be maintained and easily accessible. This method will be used to advise the People of their candidates’ position on Initiatives and support in successive elections.
This follows the precedent of the very effective Taxpayer Protection Pledge (State Legislator ATR, Congressional ATR), president Grover Norquist.
