(Olympia, WA)  --  A bill that would give all of Washington's public-school districts an extra year to collect higher property taxes is on its way to the state Senate.  The House voted yesterday to keep that authority in place to cover some of the expenses for public schools.  Lawmakers gave districts that authority to levy an extra four percent in 2010 during the recession, during which state support to public schools fell.  If the bill passes the Senate, expiration of the temporary taxing authority will be moved back to January 1st, 2019.
