In a late breaking story Friday afternoon, the Washington Secretary of State's office announced supporters of I-552 have withdrawn their efforts to get it on the November ballot. I-552, best known as the Just Want Privacy campaign, would have repealed or overturned the controversial transgender bathroom laws that set off a firestorm in our state.
Supports of Initiative 1552 are planning more events coming in the next few weeks, mirroring other efforts that have boosted signatures to get it on the ballot. I-1552 is being pushed as a counter to the controversial 'gender-neutral' bath and locker room laws passed less than a year and a half ago. Some of these signing events will likely get a lot of attention.
