Election 2005: Where we stand
With ballots due to the drop-off sites and the mailbox next Tuesday, heres a wrap-up of what state-wide initiative measures the CK Reporter has decided to endorse or not.
We say yes to:
I-900 Tim Eyman finally has a good idea to impose audits on every level of government with oversight directed by the state Auditor.
SJR-8207 Municipal court judges should be allowed to serve on the Commission of Judicial Conduct.
We say no to:
I-330 The insurance companies version of medical tort reform is narrow minded and shows little benefit to changing the industry.
I-336 The attorneys answer to I-330 isnt much better and creates too much bureaucracy.
I-901 Ban on smoking in bars and bowling alleys infringes too far into personal property rights.
I-912 Repealing the legislature-imposed gas tax without a suitable substitute shows short-sightedness and little hope for the states roads and bridges.
