Big turnout needed for Saturday hearing on raising revenue, closing tax loopholes

We need to show the House Finance Committee the Federation supports the good bills to raise revenue and close hundreds of millions of dollars in tax loopholes.

The bills are:
  • ESB 6843, temporarily suspending Initiative 960 to allow majority votes in the Legislature on revenue increases, and 
  • HB 3176, the bill to close tax loopholes.
 You’ve been calling on these bills and they’re finally getting a hearing in the House Finance Committee, 9 a.m., this Saturday, Feb. 13, in Hearing Room A in the John L. O’Brien Building.

Come to the Federation Building by 8 a.m. Saturday morning and breakfast is on us. 

We’ll deck you out in AFSCME green. We’ll leave at 8:30 to proceed to the hearing. Questions? Call April Sims or Diana Whitmore at 1-800-562-6002.
