Once a ballot initiative becomes a law, it’s subject to amendment by the legislative
body, just like any other piece of legislation. According to Matt Burbank, “There
are a number of state legislators who, for example with the question of the expansion
of Medicaid, clearly did not want to go down this path, even though there were some
reasons for doing so, and the governor pushed to get them to do that initially—they
clearly did not want to go down that path."
