WASHINGTON STATE LEGISLATORS
GET WASHINGTON STATE ON THE RIGHT PATH
ABOLISH CORPORATE PERSONHOOD- This requires little or no State Funding— This is a long-term fix and puts us on the right path. Protection for people and the environment.
CREATE THE WASHINGTON INVESTMENT TRUST- This requires little or no State Funding. This is a long-term fix. It moves us down the right road. We demand good long- term planning and solutions. Creates revenue for people & local economies. Pass this bill. http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary.aspx?bill=1320
PASS THE POWER ACT— RESCIND RECENT SERVICE CUTS – Budget cuts have already increased homelessness and suffering among Washington's children, elders and
peoplewithdisabilities. Ourgovernmentisresponsibleforprotectingbasichumanrights. No more immoral cuts to human service programs. Roll back the cuts that have left the most vulnerable citizens in our state with nothing. PARENTS ORGANIZING FOR WELFARE AND ECONOMIC RIGHTS http://www.oly-wa.us/power/
FUND THE WORKING FAMILIES TAX REBATE - This requires State Revenue. We passed it last year, because it is so right and so fair. Fund it now! We will find the money. http://budgetandpolicy.org/reports/the-working-families-tax-rebate
PASS THE DENTAL ACCESS BILL - This requires little or no State Funding. Better health care access. Authorize new Licensed Dental Practitioners to help provide safe and effective care for Washington residents. This is the right path. http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary.aspx?bill=1310
CLOSE THE LOOPHOLES - We are finding the money. This generates revenue & makes
our revenue system more fair. Let’s start here to find the money to fund essential services.

TAX CAPITAL GAINS IN WASHINGTON STATE-A Washington capital gains tax would raise about $1 billion dollars each year. We are finding the money to fund essential services. http://publicola.com/2011/11/03/lefty-policy-centers-budget-solution-tax-the-3-percent/
TAX THE 1% -This raises the revenue we need from folks who can afford to pay to keep our neighbors, friends, and family members alive. The State of Washington has the most
regressive tax structures in the US. It's time to fix that. We demand funds for education, health careandessentialservices. NooneshoulddieinWashingtonStatebecausetheLegislature can’t figure out how to establish a fair revenue system. We demand a Fair Tax Act. TAX THE 1%.
