Tax cuts are popular with voters, but not very popular with legislators. Tim Eyman has decided to take advantage of this to empower taxpayers. I-1366 would lower the state sales tax from 6.5 to 5.5 percent unless the Legislature places a constitutional amendment on the ballot by next April 15 requiring two-thirds legislative approval — or majority voter approval — for any tax increases.
Initiators in Washington must be more creative because the legislature can undo citizen approved statutes, this initiative can potentially make the legislators obey the will of the voters.
