Statewide Ballot Measures

Statewide Advisory Ballot Measure #16

Vote Maintained on Advisory Vote 16

MAINTAINED
A bipartisan group of legislators passed Engrossed Substitute House Bill 1597 that included a small excise tax in order to increase environmental protections for regional fish and wildlife. Because of a Tim Eyman initiative, the Legislature is required to submit any bill it passes that closes tax loopholes or raises revenue to a non-binding advisory vote. Vote “Maintained” on Advisory Vote 16.

Statewide Advisory Ballot Measure #17

Vote Maintained on Advisory Vote 17

Our state has been under Supreme Court order to fully fund education for several years. This June, Republicans and Democrats came together to approve a bipartisan package of revenue increases for public schools, including expanding the Business and Occupation tax. While this does not solve the education funding problem, the packages goes a long way towards providing a quality education for all students.

Statewide Advisory Ballot Measure #18

Vote Maintained on Advisory Vote 18

However, we are optimistic about retaking the state Senate this fall and working with progressives in Olympia next year to reduce this tax and instead make the wealthy pay their fair share.
