Were your legislators at the hearing earlier this month featuring the 49 For Fairness, where we delivered thousands of your letters calling for fair revenue?
Chances are your legislators in Olympia weren't able to attend in person, so make sure they see this interactive map featuring people in each and every legislative district in our state calling for fair revenue solutions.
Low-income families pay seven times times more of their income on taxes than wealthy Washingtonians do, with a disproportionate impact on communities of color. Last year, five of our biggest industries combined — aerospace, high-tech, agriculture, timber and mining – contributed only 4% of all the B&O taxes collected. Washington’s smaller businesses were responsible for paying the rest.
That's why we're calling on our legislators to fix our state's cycle of revenue crises with a solution that's fair for all Washingtonians.
Let's fill the inboxes of our legislators and key budget negotiators now. Tell them you're joining in widespread support for fair, accountable, sufficient, stable, and shared revenue proposals in the 2015-2017 state budget. Enter your address to the right to get started.
