It was first demonstrated on a statewide basis in Oregon in 2008, and in 2011 the Citizens’ Initiative Review bill was signed into law – a national historic first. The Citizens’ Initiative Review Commission oversees Oregon’s Citizens’ Initiative Review processes, which have occurred in every even year since 2010. Find out more on the Commission’s website.
