Highlight

A word or a phrase repeated in a constitutional provision is generally given the same meaning throughout the constitution.
A petition for an initiated measure must contain the sponsors' names and addresses, and a petition circulated for signatures without that information is insufficient.
The complete failure to comply with a mandatory constitutional provision for initiated measures is not substantial compliance.
Administrative estoppel requires conduct by the person being estopped which amounts to a false representation or a concealment of material facts.
