about Draper’s historic demarcation of democracy would be easy.
Were voters to approve his ballot measure, the effort would need
the blessing of both houses of the California Legislature —
lawmakers who, in a sense, would be asked to abandon their
posts. Draper’s proposal says the initiative, acting under
California’s constitutional power of voters to write their own
laws, would serve as legislative consent. It is almost certain
that interpretation would end up in court.
