Hallo, Yakima Liberals!

Monday, June 20, 7:30 pm.

Location:
Yakima Craft Taproom - OTA (On The Avenue), 120 E. Yakima Ave, Yakima, WA (ground floor of the historic Larson Building).

----------Today's Liberal Quotation - Not-------------
Tweet from Don Trump (@realDonaldTrump), 6/11/16, 4:28 PM:

"Goofy Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to as Pocahontas, pretended to be a Native American in order to advance her career. Very racist!"

Reminder: Mon. June 13, 6:00pm - Initiative 732 Q&A at Russillo's

What: Brief Presentation and Q&A: Initiative 732 - Clean Energy and Fairer Taxes

Who: Kyle Murphy, I-732 Campaign Director.

When: Monday, June 13, 2016, 6:00pm to 8:00pm, refreshments served.

Where: Russillo's Pizza Restaurant, Banquet Room, 32 North Front St #102, Yakima Washington.

Carbon Washington, the grassroots organization behind I-732, submitted more than 363,000 signatures from citizens around the state ensuring the initiative would go to voters. The policy is modeled on British Columbia's carbon tax, which is regarded as one of the most effective and efficient climate policies in the world. In Washington, I-732 would significantly lower carbon emissions while making the state's tax code less regressive.

I-732 is designed to move the state toward two goals – cleaner energy and fairer taxes – with the following policy changes:

  • Tax pollution, not people. I-732 will add a $25 per ton tax to polluting fossil fuels.
  • Pay less at the cash register. Reduce the state sales tax by one percentage point, putting hundreds of dollars a year back into the pockets of each household in Washington.
  • Fund an Earned Income Tax Credit for working families. Fund the Working Families Tax Rebate to provide up to $1,500 a year for 400,000 low-income households.
  • Reduce the Business & Occupation tax on manufacturing. Keep living-wage jobs in Washington by effectively eliminating the Business and Occupation Tax on manufacturing.

About Carbon Washington:

Carbon Washington is a bipartisan grassroots group of scientists, economists, former elected officials, business owners and concerned citizens focused on seeking a solution to climate change that works for businesses and households around the state. The group developed Initiative 732 as a revenue-neutral approach to tax carbon pollution while encouraging economic growth for families and businesses in Washington.
