Seen at the Washington State Republican Party’s election night party at the Bellevue Hyatt: Initiative maven Tim Eyman and state Sen. Pam Roach, wearing the same red T-shirt. “2/3 For Taxes Constitutional Amendment,” it reads.

Roach, R-Sumner, says she’s tired of voters passing Eyman’s tax-limiting initatives, only to have the Democrat-controlled Legislature override them when it can, after two years. Amending the constitution to require a super-majority for tax increases would end that, she says. “The people will have something secure.”

A constitutional amendment, of course, must clear both houses of the Legislature before it goes to the voters. What are the odds of that? “I guess that depends on what happens tonight,” Roach said.
