The November 2016 ballot will include the following initiatives for decision by the voters:

Nine measures are certified to appear on the Washington ballot on November 8, 2016.

Association of Washington Business’s board voted Wednesday to oppose initiatives 732, 1433 and 1464. (See https://www.awb.org/about/?id=990)

The Initiative 732 would impose a carbon emission tax on certain fossil fuels and fossil-fuel-generated electricity.  See why a “carbon tax” is a bad idea: https://www.myheritage.org/news/4-reasons-why-a-carbon-tax-is-a-terrible-idea/

The Initiative 735 would urge a federal constitutional amendment that limits constitutional rights to people, not corporations.

The Initiative 1433 would increase the state minimum wage to $13.50 by 2020. Read about this bad idea here: https://shiftwa.org/category/war-on-jobs/

The Initiative 1464 would create a campaign-finance system allowing residents to direct state funds to qualifying candidates, repeal the non-resident sales-tax exemption, restrict employment of former public employees and lobbying, and revise campaign-finance laws.  Read about this bad idea here: https://shiftwa.org/liberals-want-tax-dollars-campaigns/

The Initiative 1491 would authorize courts to issue extreme risk protection orders to remove an individual from access to firearms. Read about this bad idea here: https://www.nraila.org/articles/20160906/washington-vote-no-on-1491-ballot-initiative-will-selectively-target-gun-owners

The Initiative 1501 would increase criminal identity-theft penalties and expand civil liability for consumer fraud targeting seniors and vulnerable individuals. It would exempt certain information regarding vulnerable individuals and in-home caregivers from public disclosure.

Supporters of the Initiative 1520 submitted signatures by the July 8, 2016, deadline, but the measure failed to qualify for the ballot.

Two advisory questions will be on the November ballot, as well. Advisory Vote 14 asks voters whether to repeal or maintain a tax on certain dental plans whose premiums are $25 to $50 per member per month, and Advisory Vote 15 asks voters whether to repeal or maintain a sales tax exemption on the first $32,000 of the purchase price of qualifying new alternative fuel vehicles.

A legislatively referred constitutional amendment is also on the ballot. SJR 8210 was designed to move the deadline for the completion of redistricting for state legislative and congressional districts from January 1 of each year ending in a two, to November 15 of each year ending in a one.

Citizens of Washington may initiate legislation as either a direct or indirect state statute. In Washington, citizens also have the power to repeal legislation via veto referendum. Citizens may not initiate constitutional amendments. The Washington State Legislature, however, may placelegislatively referred constitutional amendments on the ballot with a two-thirds supermajority vote of each chamber.

At least 265 initiatives were filed for potential spots on the 2016 ballot. These include both Initiatives to the Legislature (ITL) and Initiatives to the People (ITP). In order to land initiatives on the ballot in 2016, supporters needed to submit the requisite number of signatures by the prescribed deadlines. For ITLs, the deadline was December 31, 2015. For veto referendums the deadline was June 8, 2016. For ITPs, the deadline was July 8, 2016. At least 246,372 valid signatures were required to place an ITP or an ITL on the ballot, while at least 123,186 signatures were required for referendums.

The 2016 legislative session ran from January 11 through March 10, 2016, during which time the Washington State Legislature had the opportunity to place legislative referrals on the ballot.

RNC passes Resolution in Support of Western States Taking Back Public Lands


“Would it not be better to simplify the system of taxation rather than to spread it over such a variety of subjects and pass through so many new hands.” ~Thomas Jefferson

“Everyone wants to live at the expense of the state. They forget that the state lives at the expense of everyone.” ~Frederic Bastiat

“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.” ~Patrick Henry
