Did you know that in Oklahoma, citizens can directly make laws through the initiative petition process? Why do some politicians want to make this process more difficult? What are the challenges to using this process to enact change? In this episode, Emily and James interview State Representative Mickey Dollens who recently conducted an interim legislative study on this topic. We'll also discuss the importance of policy experimentation at the local level, and whether rank-choice-voting or open primaries would reduce partisan extremism.
