The King County Democrats also voted unanimously to oppose people signing and voting for Initiative 1125 and all other initiatives filed by Tim Eyman this year.  The
I-1125 ballot title reads: Initiative Measure 1125 concerns state expenditures on transportation.  This measure would prohibit the use of motor vehicle fund revenue and vehicle total revenue for non-transportation purposes, and require that road and bridge tolls be set by the legislature and be project specific.

The King County Democrats also voted to oppose both signing petitions for or voting for  I-119 and I-1122. The subject of these two initiatives is Immigration policy, and we oppose the policy direction that these initiatives would take the state of Washington.

The King County Democrats also voted to support the upcoming Seattle Family and Education Levy which will be on the November 8, 2011 ballot and the King County Veterans and Human Services Levy which will be on the  August 16, 2011 primary ballot.
