In order to help our economy recovery we need to create a business friendly environment in Washington State. Over regulation and taxes will only hinder this recovery. Our State and local governments will have to trim their budgets while still providing necessary safety and emergency services.
Recovering from the economic effects of the COVID pandemic will require reduction in out state budget. Tax increases will not help the economy. Sales tax is the only fair tax because everyone pays it directly when they make purchases. Property tax increases not only affect homeowners but also affect renters. The cost of housing contributes to homelessness.
