Senator Ericksen’s Blueprint – Constitutional Amendments to Create Jobs and a Better Budget

In this week’s Blueprint for a Better Washington, Senator Ericksen outlines the three constitutional amendments he’ll be proposing in the 2013legislative session. Taken together, they will simplify and focus the budgeting process and create needed jobs in our state. They are:

  • Cementing the two-thirds approval threshold for tax increases;
  • Prohibiting a state income tax; and
  • Requiring a four-year balanced budget.
