SKAGIT COUNTY COMMISSIONER (District 2)
SKAGIT PUD COMMISSIONER (District 1)
REFERENDUM - 90 - (Reject)
Advisory Vote 32 - (Repeal)
Relates to SB 5223 the plastic bag ban. It requires retailers to sell reusable plastic or paper bags for 8 cents each and charge sales tax on the bag sales.
Advisory Vote 33 - (Repeal)
Relates to SB 5628, which exempts heavy equipment owned by rental companies from property tax, but places an additional 1.25 percent sales tax on the rental of the equipment and divides the proceeds between the state’s Motor Vehicle Fund and the “Multimodal Transportation” account.
Advisory Vote 34 - (Repeal)
Relates to SB 6492 which increased B&O taxes on most services businesses and it also imposed a new 1.5 percent B&O tax on hospitals.
Advisory Vote 35 - (Repeal)
Relates to SB 6690 imposes a bigger B&O tax on the manufacture and sales of commercial airplanes. Boeing did not object. This was to do with a preferred rate that was to appease the world trade organization, which wasn’t upholding its end of the deal, and somehow stave off tariffs from foreign governments. It’s on the ballot because it is an actual tax increase.
Joint Resolution 8212 - (Approve) (Reject) The SCRP is split on this
Would allow money the state collects to go toward long-term care to be invested in the stock market. It would amend the constitution, which bans the practice of investing public money in private stocks. Opponents say the ban is to keep the state from risking taxpayer money.
