Lillis: Yes, we’re super excited. I think unfortunately not all five states that had the initiative on their ballot passed, but excited to see that Maryland did, with a very significant margin. Last I checked, over 65% in favor.
UnCapped: Yeah, I think leading into it, there was no second-guessing as to whether or not it was gonna pass.
Lillis: Yeah, we saw some polls flashing as high as 70%, so there’s been a ton of optimism. Missouri also passed, with a little bit narrower margin, so it was exciting to see that for them as well.
