Budget Matters 2014

Thank you to all who attended Budget Matters 2014, our third annual policy conference at the Washington State Convention Center. 

The Budget & Policy Center joined advocates, policy experts, legislators, members of the media, community activists and students to reshape the debate on policy priorities for Washington state.  

If you missed out or want to relive some of the highlights, watch the video below.  

 


Take a look at some of the presentations from the break-out panels:

And here's some media coverage of the conference:

  • Crosscut: "Sales tax hike, income tax? Not likely." (December 16)
  • Seattle Post-Intelligencer: "Inslee warns of 'malarkey' and 'assault by polluting industries.'" (December 12)
