How we analyze budget and taxes

The Budget & Policy Center uses our Progress in Washington framework to measure how our state is doing in four budget value areas: economic security; education and job readiness; healthy people and communities; and effective and accountable government. We know that strategic investments across these value areas are essential to a strong state economy, and we reject efforts to fund investments in one area of the budget by making cuts in other critical areas.
