Regardless of anyone’s personal opinion concerning ballot question 300, all of 300 should be defended by City Council since it was approved by the voters. The judge decides constitutional law, not City Council. If the retroactive provision is ruled unconstitutional by the judge so be it. City Council talking about 300 on the 22nd of Feb/2016 is now pointless since responses have been filed.
