The State House of Representatives just released their budget for the next two years, and there’s a lot in there to like. This budget closes loopholes on capital gains, business and occupation taxes, and a number of outdated exemptions that no longer meet their original purpose.
Now we need to let our legislators hear that we like it.
Call the Legislative Hotline at: (844) 489-4843
Open from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Friday (translators are available).
Leave your name and address. (They will tell you who your legislators are.)
Tell them you want to send a message to all 3 of your legislators.
Sample Message (Make it your own but keep it short.)
I want to see our state lead the nation _______ (great schools, affordable healthcare, racial equity, clean air, etc)
It's time to clean up the tax code to make sure we build a strong foundation for Washington - and the House Democratic budget is a good step in the right direction. Please support closing the tax break on capital gains and other wasteful tax breaks to pay for a great future for all Washingtonians, rather than funding education at the expense of thriving communities.
