OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — The start of the new year is also initiative filing season in Washington.

The secretary of state’s office says 37 have been filed so far, led by 17 from initiative activist Tim Eyman.

Some of Eyman’s initiatives are called the Taxpayer Protection Act, Tougher on Tolls, Bring Back $30 Car Tabs and Let the Voters Decide on Red Light Cameras.

Registered votes can file initiatives through July 2. Sponsors need to gather signatures from more than 246,000 registered voters to be placed on the general election ballot. But they should submit at least 325,000 to cover invalid or duplicate names.

If the initiative is approved by a simple majority of voters, it becomes state law.
