Looks like I’m headed down to the State Library in Tumwater and sending an email to the Code Reviser’s Office.

I do not know what the history of RCW 29A.72.100 is; either the Washington State Library (http://www.secstate.wa.gov/library/; (360) 704-5221) or the Legislative Help Desk (800.562.6000) might be able to help you with some research on this.
Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

By the way, if you haven’t been, the Washington State Library is a pretty nice place. Worth the trip if you’re into libraries. Very helpful there.
UPDATE: Email to CRO:

Subject: RCW 29A.72.10 questions
I’m interested in the history of the current RCW regarding initiative petition page sizes and any RCW that had in the past conditioned the size of a petition. Also would you be able to provide information on the reasons the legislature has changed size requirements?
