Rossi: Don’t wait until January to reinstate property tax limit…

GOP gubernatorial candidate Dino Rossi wants Gov. Chris Gregoire to call a one-day special legislative session by the end of November to reinstate the 1 percent property tax cap that the state Supreme Court yesterday threw out.

“This cannot wait until January,” Rossi said, raising the specter of big tax hikes now. “…Simply asking local governments to not raise taxes is not enough.”

Gregoire said yesterday that she’ll push lawmakers — in January — “to thoughtfully reinstate a property tax cap.” She’s previously said that the right level would be somewhere between 1 percent and 6 percent, but not set a number that she’d like to see.
