(Olympia, WA)  --  High-school students are also getting involved in the education-funding debate in Washington.  A rain-soaked Capitol complex kept down the number of students expected to march Sunday in favor of increased funding for K-through-12 education in the state, but a few dozen managed to brave the elements.  Governor Jay Inslee's proposed 46-billion-dollar budget includes a plan to raise more than four-billion dollars through new taxes on carbon emissions, capital gains, and increased taxes on service businesses.  Senate Republicans are pushing for a 43-billion-dollar budget, which would implement a new statewide property tax to pay for education and discontinue local school-district property tax levies.
