Randy Hoops talks with Republican state representative, Elijah Haahr from the 134th District, about legislation he's proposing concerning constitutional amendments.

House Joint Resolution Four is a constitutional amendment to increase the statewide requirements for an amendment to become part of the state constitution from the current 50 percent plus one to 60 percent, according to Haahr.  He said HR97 does the same thing for initiative petitions, which attempt to amend the constitution.
