Proposed allot measures that were not on a ballot
This measure did not or
will not appear on a ballot

The Saving More Lives Initiative was intended by its sponsors to qualify for the November 4, 2008 ballot in Washington, but did not ultimately qualify.

The measure would have required applicants for a driver's instruction permit to complete an approved course in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), automated external defibrillator use (AED), and first aid. This measure was a citizen-initiated state statute.

The official ballot measure summary said:

This measure would require applicants for a driver’s instruction permit to submit verification that they have completed a course in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), automated external defibrillator use (AED), and first aid. The course must be approved by the American Heart Association, American Red Cross, or an equivalent recognized by a Washington Administrative Code rule.

The initiative was sponsored by Michael J. Amaral.
