Catch Rep. Chris Reykdal on the next Budget Beat

Posted by bens at Feb 15, 2013 06:45 PM |

Join us for the next Budget Beat call - Friday, February 22nd at noon. On the call, we'll highlight the Working Families Tax Rebate, which would provide a significant tax cut to more than 400,000 Washington families if funded. We will be joined by Representative Chris Reykdal to discuss legislation he is sponsoring to fund the Working Families Tax Rebate by closing a tax break that only benefits some out-of-state residents.

HIGHLIGHTS

Watch the Poverty Forum Video

If you missed the half-day Poverty Forum that we co-hosted with Partners for Our Children in May 2016, you can watch it on YouTube now. It features a range of speakers and panelists talking about policy solutions for addressing income inequality and poverty in our state.

Our Legislative Agenda

Our agenda for the 2015-2017 biennium calls for an equitable, sustainable revenue system in addition to state investments that: promote a world-class education system; sustain a strong middle class; produce living-wage jobs, and ensure that all Washingtonians have equal opportunity to get ahead. 

Testimonies in Olympia

We testified in support of a number of important bills during the 2016 legislative session. Take a look:

  • Our testimony (at the 23:23 minute mark) on the House Bill that would take a two-generation approach to preventing poverty
