Washington State ‘bathroom initiative,’ fails to make November ballot

Seattle PI on July 7, 2016

The “bathroom initiative” will not be on Washington’s November ballot.

Supporters of Initiative 1515 have canceled their Friday appointment to turn in signatures at the office of Secretary of State Kim Wyman, according to a late Thursday statement from spokesman Dave Ammons.
