Democratic Senator Jacobsen - out of step with the people

This past January, Washington State Senator Ken Jacobsen (D-46) introduced SJR 8201 Amending the Constitution to remove initiatives and referenda powers.

That's right. This guy wants to take away the power of the people to write their own laws and to veto legislative action.

Jacobsen has been in the legislature since 1987 and is now one of the most powerful Democrats in Olympia. Unfortunately his term ends in 2007 and voter memories are short. But this is one matter we should never forget. We have 2 years to figure out how to replace him.
