We’ve waited and waited for this announcement. I mean, here we are half way through the current legislative session, but the Washington state Supreme Court has finally ruled on the 2/3 majority laws, brought to you by our state’s top Initiative Whore, Tim “Biggest Lie of My Life” Eyman.
The ruling: by a 6-3 majority, the court upheld a lower court’s finding that 2/3s laws are unconstitutional.
I’ve not read the ruling yet, but I strongly suspect it will highlight the major argument put forth by Goldy and other bloggers here: ENGLISH. If you read the state Constitution and understand the English language, it’s kind of a no-brainer.
Once again, an Eyman initiative–in this case, several similar versions of the same basic initiative–is found to be unconstitutional.
