Washington state voters will experience dĂ©jĂ vu when they receive their ballots this year for the Nov. 8 election. Yet another initiative (I-1183) that would privatize liquor sales in Washington is up for debate.
The initiative made headlines last week when Costco Wholesale added another $8.9 million to support the initiative, bringing its total contributions to more than $22 million, according to the state Public Disclosure Commission.
With more than 10,000 Washington State homes in foreclosure in the first half of 2011 and another 76,400 homeowners seriously delinquent on their mortgages, the 2011 Washington Legislature passed the Foreclosure Fairness Act.
âI donât know how it (act) has impacted local homeowners yet because itâs a relatively new law,â says Tammy Ringer of the Northeast Washington Association of REALTORSÂź. âBut hopefully, people in our area will begin to utilize it once they learn of the available resources it provides.â
