(Olympia, WA)  --  Republicans in the Washington State Senate are proposing replacing local school levies with a statewide property tax to help fund public education.  Lawmakers say the actions would result in lower property taxes for most of Washington, while some areas would see their property taxes rise.  Governor Jay Inslee calls the proposal "flat wrong," saying it unfairly targets property owners in Western Washington, who would end up paying more in property taxes while residents of Eastern Washington would pay less.  Inslee's plan calls for a new capital-gains tax, a carbon tax, and increases in the state's business taxes for professionals to increase school funding.
