School Levies & Bonds Simple Majority

On the positive side, bills have been introduced to remove the supermajority requirement to pass school levies (HJR 4201, SJR 8202, SJR 8207) and bonds (SB 5028, SJR 8203). These bills had hearings this week and will have more hearings next week. AIA/WA is signing in at the hearings in support of the bills proposals. Prospects look very positive for at least the levy proposals. The House has passed it several times with enough members to send it to the ballot. The problem in the past was a lack of votes in the Senate. The Democrat supermajority in the Senate brightens prospects for passage considerably. If it passes the legislature, then it would go before the voters in November.
