OLYMPIA Initiatives for increased penalties for identity theft and a state-funded campaign finance program are on their way to the November ballot.
Initiative 1501 sponsors submitted around 322,000 signatures Friday. I-1501 would increase penalties for criminal identity theft and consumer fraud targeting seniors and vulnerable individuals.
Also, Initiative 1464 sponsors delivered more than 326,000 signatures. I-1464 would create a state-funded campaign finance program.
The two measures joined Initiative 1433, raising the state’s minimum wage, and Initiative 1491, limiting fire-arm access to those who may harm themselves or others, in meeting Friday’s deadline for initiatives on the November General Election ballot.
