I-1033 signature count update

Tim Eyman and other promoters of Initiative 1033 turned in 315,444 signatures on their petitions last week, the Secretary of State's office reported today.

That's significantly more than the 241,153 needed (if they are valid signatures from registered state voters) to get the proposal on the ballot.

At least one Spin Control reader was skeptical of Eyman's estimate last week of "more than 314,000" sigs. Turns out he was low-balling, ever so slightly.
