Initiative advocate Tim Eyman plans to file today with the secretary of state an initiative that says any law to restrict voter initiatives must gain voter approval before it can take effect.
Under the proposal, legislation dealing with the initiative process would require voter approval as a final step before becoming law. Eyman will need more than 225,000 valid voter signatures by early July.

Meanwhile, two Eyman committees were fined $300 Tuesday for violating campaign disclosure laws.

The Public Disclosure Commission said Eyman’s Voters Want More Choices political action committee failed to timely disclose a $1,500 in-kind contribution from Eyman in the form of a poll conducted in October 2003. His salary committee, Help Us Help Taxpayers, failed to timely disclose a $2,109 mailing on his behalf from the main campaign committee. Each committee was fined $150. Other allegations were dismissed. Eyman declined to comment on the fines.
