Time to Send Our Message Boldly!
Let’s join with our allies, like Washington United for Fair Revenue and others in an email blitz to state legislators today. Our combined voices will convey to budget negotiators how important it is that they pass fair new revenue to amply fund education while sustaining needed state services. The message is:
Pass revenue solutions now;
it is time for big corporations and the wealthiest people
to pay their fair share
Why: For our children, for our future
Our future depends on you!
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.
