Denver Rejects UFO Initiative; R.I. Keeps Name
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne with updates on a couple of ballot initiatives.
In Denver, an initiative to track space aliens has crashed and burned. Eighty-five percent of voters rejected a proposal to establish an extraterrestrial affairs commission where residents could report sightings.
In Rhode Island, or should I say the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, an overwhelming majority voted not to shorten the official state name.
It's MORNING EDITION.
