(Olympia, WA)  --  A measure that would exempt statewide advisory measures on tax changes from being subject to recounts is awaiting the governor's signature.  Current Washington state law mandates that a statewide ballot measure is automatically subject to a recall if the margin is less than two-thousand votes.  Supporters of the legislation say a recount of the results of an advisory ballot could cost the state hundreds of thousands of dollars.  The "Spokesman-Review" reports that no advisory measure in Washington has ever resulted in the Legislature removing or even reconsidering a tax.
