The Washington Motor Vehicle Fees, Initiative 490, did not make the November 2012 statewide ballot in Washington as an Initiative to the Legislature. The initiative would have set $30 annual vehicle-license fees, repeal a $3 registration-application fee and require voter approval to use "automatic ticketing cameras."[1]

A total of two initiatives have been filed - 486 and 490. Initiative sponsors include: Tim Eyman, Leo J. Fagan and M.J. Fagan.

The proposed initiative, is similar to six proposed Initiatives to the People for the 2011 that calls for prohibiting any government-imposed motor vehicle charges from taking effect unless approved by voters. The initiatives are also sponsored by Tim Eyman.

Path to the ballot

See also: Initiatives to the Legislature (Washington)

Initiatives to the Legislature, if certified, are submitted to the Washington State Legislature at its next regular session in January. Once submitted, the Legislature must take one of the following three actions:

  • The Legislature can adopt the initiative as proposed, in which case it becomes law without a vote of the people;
  • The Legislature can reject or refuse to act on the proposed initiative, in which case the initiative must be placed on the ballot at the next state general election; or
  • The Legislature can approve an alternative to the proposed initiative, in which case both the original proposal and the Legislature's alternative must be placed on the ballot at the next state general election.
