BOSTON, Massachusetts: Political activists in Massachusetts file language for 30 possible 2010 ballot initiatives by the state's August 5, 2009 deadline.[1]

Political topics addressed in 2010's crop of ballot hopefuls include reducing the state's new sales tax hike, laws to protect endangered whales and allowing more students to attend the charter school of their choice.

Carla Howell, a leading sponsor of the 2008 effort to repeal the income tax in Massachusetts, filed four of the 30 potential ballot questions. Each of hers are aimed at the 2009 increase in the Massachusetts sales tax, proposing to roll it back from anywhere from 5% to 2.5%.
