Related to the “38 years” point: propositions really only get a fair shake every four years, which means they’re much less responsive to changes happening within that time relative to the Legislature. This is something I’m thinking about with respect to Prop 52: if the rule becomes permanent and Medicare changes next year, does this obstruct needed adaptations?
