Dear Friends and Neighbors,

The House Democrats recently unveiled their proposed 2019-21 operating budget plan. Despite $3 billion or more in surplus funding—an astonishing amount of state revenue growth—they want to increase taxes by $4 billion over the next four years. Under this proposal, state spending will have increased a staggering 70 percent since 2013.

This excessive, superfluous tax plan is ugly. Here’s the bottom line: We have more than enough money to meet our state’s priorities. This kind of out-of-control, blank check writing state spending will eventually outpace taxpayers ability to pay for it.

Join me for a telephone town hall discussion this evening at 6 p.m. We’ll talk about the state’s budget proposals and other important public policy issues being considered in Olympia.

To participate dial (360) 209-6592 on Thursday, March 28, anytime between 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Thank you!

If you have any questions on how to participate, feel free to call my office at (360) 786-7806 or send me an email at jim.walsh@leg.wa.gov.

Thank you for allowing me to represent you in Olympia.
