I believe the current contracts will be fine, but projects that haven't started yet could take longer, and might reduce in scope.

I'm optimistic about a court case. The initiative writer seems to like initiatives that will fail in court or at the polls...it's his job. In this case, there's probably yet another case of him putting more than one topic into the measure, which isn't allowed.

(This guy, Tim Eyman, is also a thief and fraudster....he got caught shoplifting recently, and he might soon be prohibited from being involved in elections.)
I pray that it will be tossed out in court. I have no intention of spending the rest of my life sitting in traffic.

I am amazed that he can have the same measure ruled unconstitutional twice and still propose the same thing a third time. Does he expect a different result??
