Approve only if you want to pay more

The basics for the ill-informed for voting on I-522.

No on I-522 and I do not want my grocery bills to increase. Yes I will vote for I-522 and I want my and everyone else’s grocery bills to increase.

For the uninformed voter, here are the basics regarding regulations: all government imposed regulations require companies to expend money to meet these requirements. All businesses pass these costs on to the consumer.

This initiative is driven by the Washington hyper eco-sensitive and all-natural food sensitive businesses and consumers. This vote will be passed or rejected based on one factor and one factor alone, will the Democratic lemming-like voters continue to vote for anything this group, who controls their party in Washington, supports, or will enough of their party have an independent self-awareness to recognize the consequences of these imposing regulations and costs?
