$30 Car Tab Initiative Champ Tim Eyman Coming To The Fair
The champion of the initiative process,
(30tabs.com) statewide initiative.
In Eyman's words the initiative "gets rid of state and local taxes and fees on vehicles, bringing back the $30 tabs policy that we’ve voted for over and over again."
Eyman says "in 1999, voters passed Initiative 695 (66% in Yakima County!!) and that got Tabs down to $30. And voters OK’d that $30 tabs policy again by approving Initiative 776 in 2002 (66% in Yakima County!!) and that got ‘em down again....But in recent years, state and local governments have weaseled around those voter-approved laws, imposing various taxes and fees that have robbed us of our $30 tabs. If we don’t do this initiative, politicians are just gonna keep jacking ‘em up until we’re back to the pre-695 levels. We can’t let that happen."
Over the past 4 months, the campaign has collected 250,000 voter signatures but still need another 75,000 to qualify for the ballot. Similar measures have fallen short the past two years.
