Judge won't edit voter's pamphlet on Wash. I-1033

A Thurston County judge will not order changes to the state voter's pamphlet in a dispute over Tim Eyman's Initiative 1033.

OLYMPIA, Wash. —

A Thurston County judge will not order changes to the state voter's pamphlet in a dispute over Tim Eyman's Initiative 1033.

Eyman says the state's cost estimate includes some incorrect assumptions about how I-1033 would work. He wanted the judge to add a disclaimer, saying the financial assumptions were in dispute.

But Thurston County Superior Court Judge Richard Hicks denied Eyman's request Friday morning. Hicks says the court can't second-guess those kinds of decisions by state officials.

Initiative 1033 would cap the annual growth of state, county and city general funds at the rate of inflation plus population growth.

Revenue above the cap would be used to lower property taxes. Voters could also approve additional taxes over the cap.
