DEMAND Utah Lawmakers Uphold the Will of the People

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


Representative Mike Schultz is trying to stop a citizen’s initiative to increase funding for Utah schools. His personal opinion would take precedence over a vote of the people. Outrageous?!

Our Schools Now, an organization trying to improve funding for schools in Utah, is following the laws to collect over 100,000 signatures so Utahns can vote whether schools should receive additional funding.

But last week, the Utah lawmaker proposed a bill that would overrule this initiative if it is successful in November. In other words - if a majority of Utahns vote for Our Schools Now, his bill would negate the voice of the people. What country do we live in? 

This is NOT how government representatives should lead. Respecting the results of fair elections is the bedrock of our democracy. We cannot let officials ignore a vote of the people. This might happen in other countries, but it is NOT acceptable here. 

Please sign this petition to encourage Representative Mike Schultz not to pursue this legislation, support our democratic institutions and follow the will of the people!
