On today's InFocus podcast we're covering the latest news, including our new Policy Brief on business taxation in Washington state. Washington businesses pay 58 percent of state and local taxes, and have some of the highest tax burdens in the country. We also talk about the latest state budget outlook, and problems many school districts are facing with Washington's land-use law, the Growth Management Act.
(Note: after we recorded this podcast, state Senate Republicans released their proposal for funding K-12 education. Here is The Seattle Times' article on it. Here is The Spokesman-Review's. And here The News Tribune of Tacoma's.)
