OLYMPIA, Washington: Today marks the end of petition circulation in the state of Washington. An estimated 80 initiatives have been filed in 2011, but only three are expected to file signatures by deadline. Just one day prior to the deadline, proponents of a chicken cage initiative in Washington dropped their efforts after forging a national agreement with the egg industry.

In order to qualify for the November 8, 2011 ballot, supporters are required to submit a minimum of 241,153 valid signatures. Signatures must be submitted by 5 p.m.

The three initiatives include:

Type Title Subject Description
ITP Transportation Revenue, Initiative 1132 (3) Taxes Prohibits gas tax and toll revenues to be diverted to non-transportation purposes
ITP Restore Cuts to Long-Term Care, Initiative 1176 (16) Taxes Partially restores cuts to long-term in-home care services by extending sales taxes to nonresidents
ITP Liquor State Licensing, Initiative 1183 (6) Alcohol Would close state liquor stores; allow state licensing of private parties
