OLYMPIA, Wash. —

Tim Eyman has submitted more than 330,000 signatures in his effort to get a tax-limiting measure on the November ballot.

Eyman and his supporters submitted signed petitions for Initiative 1053 to Olympia Friday morning, the deadline for campaigns to get their signatures in.

I-1053 re-establishes the two-thirds vote requirement in order for the Legislature to pass a tax increase.

Earlier Friday, another campaign that seeks to roll back several recent tax increases, including soda and candy, turned in nearly 400,000 signatures. One more campaign has a Friday appointment to turn in signatures, I-1105, privatizing retail liquor sales.

Campaigns need a minimum of about 241,000 valid voter signatures to get on the ballot.
