► On the Record

“Government must live within its means. Just as so many families and employers in my district have had to sacrifice to make ends meet, so should state government.”

– Rep. Jaime Herrera (R-Ridgefield) on House passage last week of a temporary repeal to voter-approved Initiative 960, which requires a public disclosure period and a two-thirds vote by the legislature to raise taxes. Gov. Chris Gregoire (D-Wash.) is expected to sign an amended version of the bill later today.
