Initiative activist Tim Eyman has started collecting signatures on a measure limiting the tax power of Washington state lawmakers.
If passed, I-1185 would require a two-thirds majority in the Legislature or a vote of the people to create or raise taxes.
Voters approved the idea in 2010 with Eyman’s Initiative 1053. However, Eyman says it needs to be renewed every two years or lawmakers could ignore it in January.
Eyman must turn in more than 241-thousand valid signatures of registered voters by July 6 to qualify for the November ballot. (AP)
