OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Two statewide initiatives are expected to make Washington’s fall ballot.

Secretary of State spokesman Dave Ammons said Friday they are Initiative 1401 and Initiative 1366.

Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen supports I-1401, which would create new state criminal penalties for people trafficking in body parts of endangered species. Tim Eyman’s latest tax measure is I-1366. It would decrease the state sales tax unless the Legislature puts a constitutional amendment before voters that would require a two-thirds legislative majority to raise taxes.

Ammons said the certification process for both measures should be completed soon, but both campaigns submitted more than the minimum 246,000 signatures so they should qualify.
