I-517 Not Passing

Posted: Updated:

At this hour, it appears Initiative-517 will not pass.

I-517 is the initiative that sets penalties for anyone who interferes with or retaliates against signature-gatherers or petition-signers. It is not passing by a margin of 60% No, and 40% Yes.

The "Vote No" on I-517 campaigners, say I-517 is Tim Eyman's latest effort, aimed at increasing the profitability of the signature gathering business.

They say I-517 infringes on private property rights.
