    Problem is, as written, it might not be legal since it deals with two (2) issues. In WA, if'n I disremember the law, initiatives can only concern one item....

    Single issue is correct, UNLESS your a SCJ who can't count!! Remember the Hound hunting initiative?

    Was actually 3 but the SCOW claimed it only had 1 issue in their lame decision.
