KVI morning show host, John Carlson, interviews the sponsor of I-976, Tim Eyman, about the continuing legal odyssey over his latest voter-approved initiative for $30 car tabs in Washington.

Eyman voices his concerns about a failure by Attorney General Bob Ferguson to file paper work on time last week that would have expedited the reduction to $30 car tabs while the legal challenge to the voter approved initiative awaits an appeal hearing--likely next year--in the Supreme Court of Washington (SCOW).

King County Superior Court Judge, Marshall Ferguson, ruled that I-976 was constitutionally valid in March. His ruling is being appealed by plaintiffs, which include the Garfield County Transportation Authority plus a Seattle-area pro-labor union group and a Seattle-based environmental justice group, to the Supreme Court of Washington.

In November 2019, Washington voters approved I-976 with 56% of the statewide vote.
