Washington Municipalities’ No New Gas Tax Argument has no Amici

IJ’s Michael Bindas notes in the Seattle PI that while CCP and others have filed amicus briefs for the No New Gas Tax Initiative Committee in the Washington State Supreme Court, no one has filed a brief on behalf of the government.  This, says Bindas, is because “[t]he campaign’s appeal is no publicity stunt or political cause.  It is an American cause … The groups know, as do most Washingtonians, that the municipalities’ suit agaist the I-912 campaign was a threat to the very principles upon which our nation was founded.”
