I just wanted to quickly point to an editorial in today’s Tacoma News Tribune, lauding Ron Sims newly released tax reform proposal. [From Sims, a bold bid to overhaul taxation in Washington state]
Like the TNT, I’m not completely convinced about all the details of the Sims proposal, but I loudly applaud him for boldly embracing a state income tax.
(By the way, notice that a Property Tax Homestead Exemption is a major component of the Sims plan, a proposal we aggressively promoted during the last legislative session, resulting in the introduction of HB 3076, and a fair amount of discussion in the press. See what a little hell-raising can do?)
