Sticking with supermajority
The Constitution for the State of Washington calls for approval of 60 percent of the voters in order to raise property taxes for special levies for schools.
This was done for a very good reason and for a very good reason it has prevailed for many years.
Now voters are being asked to lower that 60 percent to 50 percent. There ought to be a very good reason to make this change. As I see it, the only reason is to make it easier to raise taxes. That is not a very good reason. I will vote to stick with the 60 percent.
