Another year, another challenge to the voter-approved supermajority requirement for tax hikes. In my column in the Everett Herald, I say it's time for the Court to put the issue to rest.
The justices may again decide the case on procedural or technical grounds, ducking the threshold question. For example, they could conclude the group bringing the suit has yet to be harmed or find that lawmakers had other options. A better outcome for taxpayers would be a final determination that the initiative passes constitutional muster.
