Policy Today podcast: I-1366 in review

Today we're discussing Tim Eyman's latest initiative, I-1366. It would cut the state sales tax from 6.5 percent to 5.5 percent if the state Legislature doesn't put a constitutional amendment on the ballot to require two-thirds legislative approval (or voter approval) for tax increases. As we noted in our recent Policy Brief on I-1366, a one-percent sales tax cut would reduce state revenues by $1.590 billion in 2015–17 and by $3.066 billion in 2017–19.
