Now it is time to focus on what our lame duck officials might try to pull off before the end of the year. Bridge magazine pointed out in September that there should have been five state-wide ballot issues instead of just three. But legislators themselves passed two of the issues, paid sick leave and minimum wage, ahead of the election so there was no need of a ballot vote. This also leaves them room to "modify" their votes between now and January 1. Bridge magazine explains what happened here . Watch for any attempts to water down the formerly-passed bills.
