Land use, estate tax measures top the list of governor's targets

OLYMPIA—Gov. Chris Gregoire has vowed to help defeat three prospective ballot measures with conservative roots, including Tim Eyman's third run at $30 car tabs.
Gregoire, a Democrat, also said Monday she's still weighing a fourth ballot measure — this one from the political left — that would force a renewable energy standard for large utilities.
In a news conference, Gregoire reinforced her opposition to Initiative 933, the Washington Farm Bureau measure that says government should pay landowners for regulations that damage property values, or waive those laws.
Gregoire said she sympathizes with the concerns behind the measure and will work with the Legislature to find a solution, particularly for preserving farmland in Washington.
"I want to do that," Gregoire said, but, "This piece of legislation is poorly drafted, far too broad."
Farm Bureau spokesman Dean Boyer said I-933 supporters are tired of getting no response from the Legislature.
"(Gregoire) certainly had an opportunity the past two years to come up with proposals that would address the situation, and she didn't," Boyer said.
