Rejects changes to initiatives

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDOctober 30, 2013 

Take time to read the last line in the Voter's Pamphlet before you vote on Initiative 517. That line gives signature gatherers the right to approach you "in front of entrances and exits to stores, and inside or outside public buildings." Do you want to be approached for an initiative signature in the library, school, on a bus, train, or any other public facility? I believe it's OK outside on the street as it is. The main changes 517 gives Tim Eyman (sponsor of this initiative) more time to prepare his initiatives and more freedom of places to get in your face. The system is fine as it is. Vote no on 517.
