Read our latest newsletter: Brief discussions of state budget, tax policy, and regulating the gig economy in Seattle

Our latest newsletter is here. We publish a short recap of the previous week every Monday morning during the Legislative session.

In today’s report, we look at the pending state budget stalemate, consider the effects of proposed increases in business taxes, the new capital gains tax proposed by the House and Gov. Inslee, and a federal judge’s decision to grant an injunction temporarily blocking Seattle’s law permitting drivers for ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft to unionize.

We also link to relevant articles and op-eds, including today a commentary by AWB president Kris Johnson on the governor’s proposed tax package.
