WA Senate Democrats To Try To Force Vote On School Levy Bill

(Olympia, WA)  --  Washington State Senate Democrats say they'll try today to force a vote on a bill dealing with school district levies.  The Senate GOP is temporarily without its 25-24 majority, as Senator Brian Dansel resigned earlier this week to take a job with the Trump administration.  The Democrats are hoping to bring up legislation to delay a planned reduction in how much school districts can collect in local property tax levies.  A legislative estimate shows that without the delay, local school districts stand to lose about 358-million dollars a year beginning in January 2018.
