WA Lege SpecSess: House tax plan dumps sales tax, hikes B&O

OLYMPIA — The House of Representatives is debating Saturday morning a new tax plan that does away with the sales tax hike approved by the Senate on Friday.

The debate is likely to be much the same. Republicans will say this will hurt the economy and cost jobs. Democrats will say it’s a balanced approach, with far more cuts in the budget than taxes raised.

Stay tuned.
