Shoreline previously levied a $20 fee on license renewals to fund repair of existing sidewalks.

Statewide initiatives - quick review

  • Initiative 1631 Carbon Tax is failing in first returns. People seem to be swayed by the argument that the polluters will just pass the tax on to consumers.
  • Initiative 1634 Sugar Tax - People are voting that they don't want any human consumables taxed.
  • Initiative 1639 Firearms - passing with 60%, this initiative will be used to convince legislators to pass laws regarding firearms.
  • Measure 940 - Law enforcement mandatory training and personal accountability - passing with 60%.
  • Advisory Vote 19: Voters are repealing the state legislature's work in Engrossed Second Substitute Senate Bill 6269.
