Proposition One's plan for the future in the USSR is to have committee members cultivate and work with People's Deputies who have already given us their support, and to compile dossiers and forge relationships with newly elected Deputies who seem to be open to Proposition One. The new Union Treaty (or Constitution) will be rewritten in l992. The strategy for the USSR differs from the U.S. strategy in that in the U.S., Proposition One is a voter initiative; in the USSR, given that rewriting their Constitution is a legislative effort, public outreach will still be in the form of petitioning, group presentations and direct action. However, in the USSR, in the interest of expediency, Proposition One will concentrate much more on the delegates to their form of a constitutional convention.
