Catch Rep. Chris Reykdal on the next Budget Beat

Posted by Ben Secord 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.
