Tim Eyman announced his own legislative agenda today, submitting five ballot initiatives to the state elections office.
Here’s the list:
- Protecting his 2/3 initiative: Eyman convinced voters to require a two-thirds super-majority vote to raise taxes in the Legislature with I-1053 in 2010. His new proposal aims to keep the governor and Legislature from changing it.
- Capping car tabs: He’s also proposed a $30 limit to car tabs, which would limit the fees and taxes Washington can raise on vehicles.
- Traffic camera control: Another of his measures aims to remove all traffic cameras in the state that do not have voter approval.
- Investigating government fraud: This would create a state inspector general’s office, funded by existing sales taxes, to investigate fraud.
- The initiative process: Finally, he’s looking to make interfering with signature gathering illegal, as well as allowing more time to gather signatures for ballot initiatives.
Eyman, a ballot initiative activist of sorts, is known for proposing a number of initiatives each year — though he usually only pursues signatures for one.
He can begin signature gathering after his proposals are reviewed and approved, which should happen within several weeks.
