Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber Opposes State I-517
The Chamber’s Government Affairs Committee’s recommendation to oppose the initiative derived from the following reasons:
• Infringes on private property rights by allowing signature gatherers inside your business/school/sports stadiums on signature-gatherers' terms.
• Businesses already receive numerous complaints of aggressive signature gatherers.
• Impedes businesses’ ability to deal with aggressive signature gatherers.
• Local governments and businesses will expend significant resources in court addressing illegal and unconstitutional local ballot initiatives.
