Dooley Precedent

If County Executive Dooley gets the County smoking ban substantially changed or gets a new ban passed, won't that be the first time the County Council has scrapped a voter approved law less than a year after its implementation? A lot of us assumed that a law put in by voters couldn't be touched for at least a year. The O'Fallon City Council and the Cape Girardeau City Council will be watching Dooley on this. Both have smoking bans on the ballot they would like to change as soon as possible.
