I am voting NO on Initiative 1033

Tim Eyman is sponsoring Initiative 1033, on our November ballot. It is based on a similar measure that passed years ago in Colorado. It led to deep cuts to public schools, roads and highways, and children’s health care. In fact, it did so much damage to that state’s economy that in 2005, Coloradans voted to suspend the law. The national recession has already cost our state thousands of jobs and forced billions in cutbacks to important local services, like education and health care. I-1033’s flawed formula will force deeper cuts and lock them in for years — meaning more job losses, more hard times for Washington families, and a longer delay waiting for our economy to recover.

Take action now to help defeat this harmful initiative in Washington. Vote NO on Initiative 1033!
