A provision of a 2007 initiative, Initiative 960, directly led to the placement of this advisory vote on the ballot. Under that approved measure, of which some parts were later repealed, the vote was to be conducted to let voters say whether they agreed with the action of elected state officials regarding proposed tax increases.
The following is information obtained from the supporting side of the measure:
- Tim Eyman, the sponsor of Initiative 960, the measure that directly placed this 2012 measure on the ballot, stated, "It's kind of cool that it only took five years for voters to get this right."
No formal campaign in opposition of the measure was identified by Ballotpedia.
