Waters, Comparison with State Initiative Law (2003, p. 20) provided data on state initiative law:
Six states place restrictions on the number and frequency of ballot measures. In Nebraska, an initiative petition may not be filed that is substantially the same as one that failed on the ballot within the preceding three years. Wyoming has a similar provision, except the time period is five years. Massachusetts’s law states that "substantially the same petition cannot have appeared on the ballot at either of the two immediately preceding biennial state elections." Mississippi limits the number of initiative proposals to five: the first five measures meeting the submission requirements will be placed on the ballot. Initiatives rejected by the voters cannot be placed on the ballot for two years after the election.
