Rep. Dave Hayes talks with KSER

Rep. Dave Hayes, Camano Island, talked with KSER about the House and Senate versions of the state budget, as the 2016 legislative session winds to a close.  Hayes explains that the supplemental operating budget approved along party lines in the House includes significant tax increases, while the Senate version is more austere.  Hayes, who said that many lawmakers believe the House version is not credible, explained that the tax increases proposed by Democrats have no legal standing, and therefore the budget proposed essentially is not funded.
