    Couldn't the Dems try to retread their constitutional amendment, the initiative that just failed?  Obviously it's a steep hill to climb, but it isn't undoable.  Wouldn't a constitutional amendment trump a state law?  Since as an appropriations bill it cannot be repealled, this would seem a legitimate plan B.  ANyone with insite, please let me hear your thoughts.

         If the law goes through as is, there is no repeal. We can put another Prop 2 type initiative on the ballot in 2014 to amend the constitution, basically prohibiting right-to-work laws. Unfortunately, the law as passed will go into effect in the meantime until the constitution is changed 2 years from now. If the law was stripped of the appropriation and we successfully put it on the ballot, the law is suspended until the election.
