Paid per signature ban has open field in Montana

Remember Rep. Sherry Appleton's idea to ban the paid-per-signature initiative model (here and here)?

Looks like Montana is going to pass that reform, along with a few others, after a big debacle last summer. The attention is being paid to a ban of out of state signature gatherers though, not the paid-per-signature ban that got everyone all fired up here.

It probably helps that three initiatives were thrown off the ballot last year because of fraud.

By the way, in case you were wondering, and I know you were, Montana is one of the states that allows printer sized initiative petitions.
