Editorial: Clarno right to reject ballot measures

Like it or not, Oregon’s constitution is pretty clear when it comes to how many subjects may be covered by a single ballot measure: One. That’s true if the ballot measure proposes a change to the law or to the state constitution.

That’s also why Secretary of State Bev Clarno was right to reject initiative petitions 35, 36 and 37 when she did so on Sept. 24. Each one not only made one or more changes to forestry practices, it also made changes to the way the Oregon Board of Forestry operates.
