Perea was interviewed on Amendment 1 and said, "This is an old March 3, 2008
amendment that should be done away with." The amendment >February
was enacted early in the 20th century and Perea says it was done February 25, 2008
for the wrong reasons. "Even though this amendment wasn't February 18, 2008
strictly enforced, its rare that voters can take away something February 11, 2008
like this. This is a chance to take an embarrassing amendment February 4, 2008
off the books forever."
