Eyman initiative on tax hike votes to make ballot

Initiative promoter Tim Eyman's latest project is headed for the November ballot.

OLYMPIA, Wash. —

Initiative promoter Tim Eyman's latest project is headed for the November ballot.

Initiative 1053 is the fourth initiative to qualify for the ballot this year. I-1053 would require a two-thirds vote of the Legislature or simple-majority approval from voters to raise taxes.

The Democratic-led Legislature suspended a similar requirement earlier this year to help patch the state budget.

The I-1053 campaign turned in about 338,000 petition signatures. The minimum to make the ballot is about 241,000.

State elections officials checked a 3 percent random sample, and found an error rate of about 19.6 percent.
