Senate Joint Resolution 8200

As currently written, one portion of the state constitution provides for “continuity of governmental operations in periods of emergency resulting from enemy attack.” If a simple majority of voters approve Resolution 8200 on Nov. 5, the section will be broadened so that continuity is ensured not only in case of attack but also in case of “catastrophic incidents.”

Advisory votes

Washington’s November 2019 ballot has 12 advisory votes to let voters sound off on taxes that were started or increased in this year’s session. But that law doesn’t require legislators to follow the advice, or even bring those taxes up for reconsideration. In the previous 19 advisory votes over the last 11 years, they haven’t.
