Washington State PTA and nearly 200 organizations endorse 1098

See the organizations and endorse as a citizen:

The Yes on 1098 campaign received our newest endorsements from the Washington State Parent Teacher Association (PTA)1 and the Greater Seattle Business Association.2 These organizations join Bill Gates Sr. and our growing coalition of business, civic, labor, and religious leaders who support I-1098's measured plan to reform Washington's unfair tax system.

But just as critical is the support of you and citizens all around the state who want to be a part of the effort to cut taxes for small businesses and the middle class, while providing stable, dedicated funding for education and healthcare by taxing the wealthiest 1.2%.

That is why today we are asking you to endorse the campaign. Please click and share the link below to add your name to our growing list of citizen endorsers who support 1098!

Scott Allen, President of the Washington State PTA commented on the need to pass 1098. "We need to do what is right for our children and for Washington's future.  Over the last two decades, Washington has fallen further and further behind other states when it comes to funding education and supporting reform efforts. We can't let Washington continue to fall behind in getting our kids what they need to be successful in school and in life. I-1098 will move us forward towards providing funding for the quality education our kids deserve"

With your help, the people of Washington State will ensure our kids get the quality education they deserve.

  1. I wonder how much of this extra revenue goes towards union salaries (teachers, public employees). etc. Afterall "education" covers alot. There is a reason why employee unions are pushing this referendum so hard.
