Groups plan to submit signatures Friday for ballot measures that would privatize the state's liquor sales, limit how the state can set highway tolls and require background checks for long-term-care workers. Sponsors said the initiatives are necessary because of either the action or inaction of the Legislature.
A fourth group abandoned its initiative Thursday that would have required businesses to provide egg-laying hens with more spacious cages. The industry and animal welfare groups have agreed to a national effort on that issue.
Supporters of a marijuana legalization initiative say they don't appear to have enough signatures.
