More on the amendments

-A A +A

My eyes glaze over as I study the Election Resolution in the Los Alamos  Monitor of 9/18. There are 5 Whereas’s, then 4 Questions, which I am to vote on, then 4 Exhibits.  The first Whereas covers 598 to 604, VII, 700, 703, 704, IX, and 907, presumably relating to the Initiative Process, and then it sends me to Exhibit A.  
I am put off, but soldier on to Exhibit A, where I find that Legislation by Initiative shall not extend to Budget, Bonds, Appropriations, Taxes, Capital Projects, Solid Waste, Compensation, Zoning, or Otherwise by Law. Otherwise?  What does it cover?  Is anything allowed?  Are we being disenfranchised?  Is it logrolling?  I will need a lawyer to discover what Otherwise refers to, and a judge to decide on the rest.
