Less than three weeks to get an initiative on November ballot

Posted: Updated:

Yakima, WASH--There's less than three weeks left to get a ballot initiative on the November ballot.  

We caught up with a man the farmer's market who is trying to drum up support for I-1098.  If approved the measure would place an income tax on the wealthiest 3 percent of the state.  That means couples making over $400,000 a year and individuals making over $200,000.

"It would go to help fund education and the basic health plan.  It would also reduce class sizes", says Ed Patton, a volunteer with the campaign.

Some other initiatives getting attention are 1056 dealing with illegal immigration and 1100 and 1105 to privatize liquor sales.  All initiatives need 241,153 signatures to get on the ballot.
