Secretary of State Steve Hobbs sent official notification to the Washington state Legislature on January 8 that all six Let’s Go Washington initiatives to the legislature have been granted provisional certification while signatures are being verified. Over 2.6 million signatures for all 6 initiatives were turned in.

The six initiatives are:

· Initiative to the Legislature no. 2081 parental rights related to education;

· Initiative to the Legislature no. 2109 repeal capital gains tax

· Initiative to the Legislature no. 2111 no state income tax

· Initiative to the Legislature no. 2113 reasonable police pursuit

· Initiative to the Legislature no. 2117 stop hidden gas tax/carbon tax credit trading

· Initiative to the Legislature no. 2124 opt out states long term care insurance

If sufficient signatures are verified, the Legislature may approve an initiative or send it to voters. If an initiative is rejected by the Legislature, or the Legislature takes no action by the end of the Legislative session on March 7, the Secretary of State will certify the initiative for the next General Election. The Legislature may also pass an alternative proposal to accompany an initiative on the ballot.
