AMAZING VICTORY: We killed the bill repealing tax advisory votes! Your emails & testimony got ‘er done!
Mon, March 15, 2021
Since the November election, it’s been clear the Democrats in Olympia were hell-bent to raise taxes and then hide them from the voters by repealing tax advisory votes.
And why wouldn’t they?
After all, tax advisory votes notify every voter in the state:
* Which taxes were increased
* How much their tax increases will cost us
* How legislators voted on each tax increase
* Provide voters with the chance at the November election to register their support or opposition to each one.
In 9 legislative sessions in a row, Olympia raised taxes.
There were 35 tax hikes that cost the taxpayers $52.1 billion.
We know that because of tax advisory votes.
For months, I’ve asked each of you to send emails to all 147 legislators telling them you oppose Senate Bill 5182.
1000’s of emails from all of you were sent in response to these:
JAN 21, 2021: Watch My Testimony Defending Tax Advisory Votes.
Because of our diligent efforts, Senate Bill 5182 didn’t get put on the senate floor for a vote by the “bill cut-off.”
This morning I received messages from Sen. Jeff Wilson and Rep. Jim Walsh (they are the ranking members in the Senate and House committees overseeing the bill) and they confirmed:
The bill is dead for this legislative session.
THIS IS AN AMAZING VICTORY!!
You should all be very proud of this achievement.
It’s one of many:
No wonder the Democrat AG is trying so hard to shut me down.
I’m 100% committed to appealing these ridiculously unconstitutional restrictions on the First Amendment because if they get away with it with me, you could be next!
But we need your help to do it.

And now, a message from Sid Maietto and Larry Jensen:
We’re asking folks to donate to our PAC so Tim can get paid back. And your donations will also help stop Inslee’s Income Tax and Carbon Tax Schemes with the initiatives we’re co-sponsoring with Tim.
The taxpayers of Washington need our help now more than ever. Donate to our political committee so we can keep fighting for you:
