Tim Eyman: Voters Deserve To Win Tax Tug-Of-War

Nov 5, 2015

Tim Eyman's latest tax-reducing intitiative, I-1366, passed handily in Tuesday's election.

Eyman talked to David Hyde about why he thought the initiative was necessary and about how he feels to get the victory while he's under investigation over allegations of campaign finance violations.

I-1366 would cut the sales tax by one percentage point unless the Legislature sends to voters a constitutional amendment that requires two-thirds legislative approval or voter approval to raise taxes. There have already been rumblings of a court challenge

Eyman is unswayed.

"The voters are demanding a voice in their government," he said. "What's wrong with that?"
