It's not required to go to a vote by the people. That's why it's called a representative republic; we elect legislators to represent us so we don't have to vote on every single bill.<quoted text>
It was not allowed to go to a vote by the people obviously.

Why bother having legislators if you're gonna have the people vote on everything? If I have to do the legislature's job, then I want their pay & benefits!
