2. They don't "bypass the normal legislative process"

In states where they are allowed they are PART of the normal legislative process.

I agree that veto is too much power in the governors hands, especially when these measures have the ability to force the state governments hands when they are acting in opposition to the people's wishes. It basically says 1 person knows better than the voters and allows state governments to suppress the voice that their constitutions were crafted to empower.
