the prop 100 sales tax initiative was arguing different case law than that of our sales tax initiative. The Prop 100 (continuation) sales tax was deficient in that the 100 word statement on the petitions did not match word-for-word to those initially filed. However, the prop 100 committee did file an amended 100 word statement that matched word-for-word and it was on a disk with the Secretary of State.

Our sales tax initiative is being kicked out because the 100 word statement is trying to act as both a referendum (undoing the Councils sales tax increase) and an Initiative (requiring all future sales tax increases to go before the voters). They can't have it both ways.
