Initiative promoter Tim Eyman says he's found the target for his next campaign.
Eyman said next year’s initiative will seek to reinforce the two-thirds vote requirement for the Legislature to raise taxes.
That rule is already in state law because of earlier initiatives. But the Legislature can amend them with a simple majority vote after they’re two years old.
That expiration date runs out at the end of this year. And top Democrats say it’s virtually certain they’ll suspend the two-thirds requirement to help fill the growing state budget deficit.

Eyman hasn’t worked out the details of his proposed initiative. The deadline for submitting petition signatures is next summer.
