SEATTLE (AP) -- Washington voters have decided to continue to require the Legislature to get a two-thirds majority vote to raise taxes.
  
But early vote counts show a less decisive picture on an initiative that would allow charter schools in the state.
  
The early returns Tuesday night show the charter schools measure, Initiative 1240, is passing narrowly statewide. But it's behind in voter-rich King County.
  
The supermajority proposal, Initiative 1185, has passed decisively statewide.
  
Anti-tax crusader Tim Eyman is calling on the Legislature to amend the constitution to make the two-thirds requirement permanent.
