State Supreme Court sends De-Escalate WA’s Initiative 940 to the November 2018 ballot

A deeply divid­ed Wash­ing­ton State Supreme Court ruled today that De-Esca­late Wash­ing­ton’s Ini­tia­tive 940 must appear on the Novem­ber 2018 bal­lot to be con­sid­ered by the peo­ple because its adop­tion by the Leg­is­la­ture last win­ter was effec­tive­ly not with­out change or amend­ment due to the Leg­is­la­ture’s pas­sage of a sep­a­rate com­pro­mise bill (ESHB 3003) intend­ed to super­sede I‑940.
