Pass revenue solutions now;

it is time for big corporations and the wealthiest people

to pay their fair share

 

Agricultural lands

All About the Benjamins: Washington State Budget Proposals


The Governor, the Washington House of Represenatatives and the State Senate have now all released their budget proposals. You can review all of the budgets by clicking on the following links: 1) Governor's Proposal  2) House Proposal  3) Senate Proposal. After you've finished assessing  the proposals we encourage you to let your state legislators know how you feel about each and emphasize your support for new, FAIR revenues to meet the funding mandates of the McCleary Supreme Court decison along with other state services. We must make it clear that relying on current insufficent and regressive taxes is not acceptable. Senator Andy Hill's presentation about state budgets is intersting reading.
