Tim Eyman’s Initiative 1033 is the only one that bothered to turn in signatures yesterday to the Secretary of State’s office. Because today is a holiday, that means it’s the only initiative with a chance to make it to the ballot.
Among those left in the dust were Initiative 1043, which sought to tighten some immigration laws. Readers might remember it as the one that caused a minor stir by inserting petitions in newspapers around the state, including The Spokesman-Review, and by taking money from a controversial advocate of tighter immigration standards.
One other possible ballot measure, a referendum on same sex partnerships, has until July 25 to turn in its signatures.
