HELENA- Montana voters will be voting on six ballot issues in November.
The Secretary of State's office reports two citizen proposed ballot issues have been certified and will appear on the general election ballot.
The first one, IR-124, allows Montanans to vote on the recently passed medical marijuana reform bill. The second ballot issue, I-166, is a policy directive which states that corporations are not people.
The Montana Legislature also placed four items on the November ballot.
LR 120 would require parents to be notified prior to their minor child getting an abortion. LR 121 would deny state services to illegal aliens. LR 122 prohibits the state or federal government from forcing Montanans to purchase health insurance.
LR 123 requires the state to return excess budget surplus to the taxpayers. However, District Court has decertified this from the ballot, but the decision is being challenged at the Montana Supreme Court.
