CIR (and things like it) in 2018

Posted by on September 7, 2018 in CIR research collaborative | 0 comments

This year, there is no statewide Oregon CIR, but there are a few experiments happening.

Portland already hosted a CIR August 23-26 on a Housing bond measure on the ballot for the Portland metro area.

Massachusetts CIR is holding a second pilot test of the process September 12-15 on Question 1, which concerns the maximum number of patients a nurse must attend to at a given time.

A CIR test in California will take place Sept 27-30 on Proposition 10, which would enable local governments to control rental prices.

A pair of public policy researchers in Hawaii are gathering a non-random sample of citizens to try out the basic idea of the CIR on a ballot question about holding a Constitutional Convention.

Irish political scientists are testing the potential impact of a CIR Statement by testing a mock-up of one in the general election, using text adapted from the findings of a previous citizen assembly.

As always, we’ll post the results of these experiments when they become known.
