Newsletter Correction – October 2022 Edition

 

Regarding Ranked Choice Voting.

Newsletter Correction:  The newsletter was already published when a correction was found.  In the “Reject Proposition 3, Ranked Choice Voting” the first line should have read: “After failing in committee, Kevin Ranker and Sharon Abreu brought back Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) to the County Charter Review Commission, where the majority did pass it.”  A presentation was made by both sides to the entire Charter Review Committee after the motion had failed in committee due to lack of a second to the motion.

@juliecbarrett OK! Both the House and Senate are holding work sessions on the CO2 tax, but only the Senate is taking public comment (hence my confusion).

So, sign up and fire away!

Happy #Thanksgiving from all of us at the Washington State Republican Party!

We hope your day is filled with family, friends, and Turkey!

From @Crosscut: Rep. Ed Orcutt, R-Kalama, pointed to rising inflation and rising property taxes as a reason to give back some tax dollars. “Somewhere in here we have got to figure out some sort of tax relief,” said Orcutt. #waleg

Sen. Lynda Wilson: Costly new budget just signed by @GovInslee just made WA a more regressive place to live. People would have been far better off with the Republican approach…which offered tax relief, not new/higher taxes. #waleg #Washington #taxapalooza http://ow.ly/9vJ050EPQLJ

Jay Inslee on signing carbon legislation which has conservatively been estimated by respected consulting firms to raise the cost of gas by 95 cents/gal by 2028: “Don’t let anyone give you that swill that it is going to increase prices.” 2:07 pm 5/17/21 #waleg

And just like that, with a single-vote margin (25-24) and bipartisan opposition, an income tax passes off the Senate floor. Not an excise tax…an income tax. Something Washingtonians have voted down 10 times and still oppose according to a recent Elway Poll. #NoIncomeTax #waleg

For months conservatives have criticized WA Gov Inslee’s handling of the pandemic. But now even some Democrats are exasperated at the pace of reopening. As are some local officials.
