WA Lege Day 55: Tax debate on making sales tax increase temporary

OLYMPIA -- Sen. Joe Zarelli suggests an incentive to make sure the temporary sales tax temporary.

If it doesn't go away in 2013, legislators don't get their per diem.

Sen. Rodney Tom, D-Medina, says in "the spirit of bipartisanship" he was supporting the amendment, even though he doubts it will change Republicans idea on the tax package.

Passes on a voice vote, apparently unanimously.
