Representative Hurst Confirms Work On I-502 Fixes

During a telephone interview today, Rep. Chris Hurst, D-Enumclaw, chairman of the House Government Oversight and Accountability Committee, confirmed that he hopes the Legislature will come to agreement on a bill to amend Initiative 502. Any change will require a two-thirds vote of both chambers because the law was passed by the voters in November of 2012 — the Constitution requires a two-thirds vote to amend initiatives within the first two years of passage.
