The quality of public services in Washington is beginning to slip as reduced tax receipts shrink funding for vital services. Initiative 1098 would help to change that, dedicating all new revenue directly to education and health care. And it would give significant tax savings to middle class people and small businesses – the drivers of Washington’s economy.
