Why doesn’t NCID repeal state-level initiative laws?

NCID is drafted to minimize impact on existing law. It is simpler and shorter that way. After NCID is ratified, existing state-level initiative procedures will co-exist with NCID procedures. That way, citizens who have not studied NCID and who are more comfortable with existing state-level procedures have nothing to fear from NCID. We do not anticipate that both NCID and prior initiative law will be equally popular and operate simultaneously. We believe that NCID procedures are superior and that existing state-level procedures will fall into disuse. Once in disuse, representative legislatures are free to dismantle the obsolete procedures.
