Spokane Proposition 2

A nonbinding advisory vote asking voters if Spokane city leaders should cut city funding of existing programs to pay for the costs of Spokane Proposition 1, if it were to pass. Supporters of placing this advisory question on the ballot say that if Proposition 1 is approved, it would increase the city’s legal bills, at the least. Opponents of placing this advisory vote on the ballot say the city council’s action to place this advisory vote on the ballot was an unfair trick by politicians to hurt the prospects of Proposition 1.
