I-1634 aims to obstruct taxing food
The Washington Secretary of State’s Office has formally certified Initiative 1634 for the Nov. 6, 2018 general election ballot, and it could be the ballot item that brings out the voters.
It aims to protect the state from a tax most voters oppose, a tax on food and beverages.
I-1634 brought out a mixed, if not unusual base of support. Liberal groups, such as Teamsters unions, and conservative groups, such as farm bureaus, worked together.
