This bill appears to be deceitful in that it is presented as constraining state spending when in fact it appears to allow for an increase in state spending. Yes the limit is reduced from 9% to 8% but the revenue base is increased approximately 30% (because property taxes constitute approx. 30% of total WA state revenue). Thus 100 x .09 = 9 while 130 x .08 = 10.4 !!! You don't need your representative to interpret, you can do the math yourself.
