not sure—possibly something on official state site. Howie mentioned the income tax abolishment one and a few others
I did just spot this:

2008 Massachusetts Ballot Questions
Four referendum questions have moved a step closer to being on the ballot in Massachusetts next November.
These questions would ban greyhound racing, decriminalize marijuana, repeal the state’s income tax, and repeal portions of a development law known as Chapter 40B.
Advocates of the questions needed to get at least 66,593 signatures by November 21 - an amount equal to three percent of the ballots cast in last year’s Gubernatorial election. The town and city clerks in the 351 cities and towns have until Monday, the 26th, to certify the signatures. The Secretary of State then has until Wednesday, the 28th, to accept the signatures.
If the Secretary of State determines that the questions have received sufficient signatures, the legislature then has until the first Wednesday in May to pass the questions into law. If the legislature does not enact the questions, advocates then must obtain another 11,099 signatures - 0.5 percent of the 2006 Gubernatorial ballots - by June 18 in order for the questions to appear on the November ballot.
Thanks for the info.
Do you know what this is about? Howie didn't know the last time I heard him mention it.
Let me help. Here are the answers to the questions:
ban greyhound racing -— YES
decriminalize marijuana-— YES
repeal the states income tax-— NEVER
repeal portions of a development law
known as Chapter 40B-— Unions have not told me how to vote
There now MA voters don’t need to even vote on these.
