“Initiatives aren’t just about passing laws, they’re about lobbying your elected officials for policies that you want. And like all lobbying, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes the people are asking for something the city council just can’t give them. But, that’s not an excuse to prevent them from asking. That is simply squelching their First Amendment right.”

Tim Eyman speaking after he testified in support of Senate Bill 5347, a bill requiring cities and local governments to submit initiatives to a vote of the people even if the initiative would have no effect.
