As the election nears, the campaigns gets a little warmer.
State Treasurer Jim McIntire warns of adverse effects to the state credit rating in SeattlePI.com.
The Seattle Times editorial board calls 1033 the wrong restraint on state spending.
The Port Orchard Independent endorsed it. So did the Yakima Valley Business Times (no link available).
Initiative sponsor Tim Eyman takes to the Sound Politics blog to talk about the opponents' financing.

Finally, read the WRC brief. This is an important measure.
