YES on I-976 – $30 Car Tabs
ALL WASHINGTON VOTERS:
VOTE YES ON I-976 IN NOVEMBER
(I-976 – A STATEWIDE INITIATIVE WHICH BRINGS BACK $30 CAR TABS)
For 20 years, taxpayers have fought for and passed this protection
ROUND 1 –
In 1999, voters passed I-695’s $30 cap on vehicle license tabs. Court vetoed it but the 2000 Legislature immediately adopted it. Democrat Governor Gary Locke said: “We will not return to the days of high license fees – $30 license tabs are here to stay.”
ROUND 2 –
In 2002, voters passed I-776’s $30 cap. Court upheld it on single subject rule and other issues. Court came back later and said I-776 did repeal Sound Transit’s vehicle tax but since I-776 didn’t mandate bond retirement (I-976 does require it), the tax remains.
Thanks to ROUNDS 1 & 2,
vehicle tab costs stayed low for almost 14 years. But vehicle owners are getting hit with massive sticker shock by skyrocketing vehicle costs. Despite hearing from outraged constituents for 2 years, politicians have done nothing.
THAT’S WHY ROUND 3 IS NEEDED –
352,000 people got I-976 on the ballot. So now the voters have a rare chance to protect themselves from skyrocketing taxes.
- I-976 caps vehicle registration costs at $30 per year for everyone in the state (cars, light trucks, SUVs, & other vehicles) and gets rid of state and local taxes and fees on vehicles.
- I-976 repeals the dishonest, inaccurate vehicle valuation schedule that’s got everyone so upset. I-976 prevents state and local governments from artificially inflating the value of your vehicle(s) to bring in more taxes than they should. No more price gouging.
- I-976 prohibits state and local govts from imposing dishonest vehicle taxes. Sound Transit lied to voters about the costs. I-976 is a do-over for voters now that we know the truth. Getting rid of their dishonest vehicle tax gives back $7 billion to taxpayers. ST’s own report shows that I-976 only affects a small portion (13%) of ST3’s $54 billion:
Politicians will NEVER limit taxes.
Vote YES on I-976 and bring back our $30 tabs.
On Monday, there was a great rally organized by superstar leaders Carolyn Strong and Billye-Brooks Sebastiani of Snohomish County. They did an awesome job with their "Uphold Our Vote on $30 Tabs" event. Rallies are a lot of work and I really admire grassroots...
Inslee & Legislators Are Being Inundated With Emails From People Demanding $30 Tabs – SEND ‘EM MORE!
On Sunday, I asked all of you to send emails to Inslee and legislators demanding $30 Tabs now. They are getting buried! There's been an overwhelming response. They need to hear from you. Today (Mon, Jan 13) is opening day of the legislative session. So it's critical...
A regular citizen confronted Jay Inslee last week:Now it's your turn. There's 2 ways to tell Jay Inslee and the Legislature "GIVE US OUR $30 TABS NOW!" 1. Come to Olympia tomorrow (Mon, Jan 13, 10:30am-1pm) and join me/us for a $30 tabs Rally on the steps of the...
Jay Inslee couldn’t be bothered with a question WA voters care about. He’s way too important. He has no patience for the people’s petty concerns.
Yesterday, an Elway poll came out showing nearly 60% of voters outside King County disapprove of Jay Inslee's job performance. It's not a mystery why. As he runs for a 3rd term, voters are tired of a Governor who calls them stupid, says they were confused when they...
I'm absolutely thrilled that so many people have responded to this: I want your advice. Ever since I announced, I've been hearing from more and more grassroots supporters asking me to run as a Republican. I've thought a lot about it, talked with my team, and after...
My first update for 2020. I want your advice. I’m hearing from a lot of supporters on this. I want to know what you think.
On election night, with our $30 Tabs Initiative overwhelmingly passing, it never occurred to me to run for Governor. And then the elites mocked us:And then Seattle sued us: And then Bob Ferguson screwed us: And it was this confluence of awfulness that spurred me to...
Absolutely fantastic folks joined me in Olympia for our $30 Tabs Rally: Many were first timers attending a political event: People from all over, including Centralia, Renton, Texas (!!), Eatonville, and Shelton: Terry earned an iconic $30 Tabs t-shirt for traveling...
Mon, Dec 30, 11am – join me in Olympia where we’re filing a new lawsuit to protect $30 tabs (2000 Lakeridge Dr SW, Olympia). You’re gonna LOVE this!!!
After a big debate where the pigs at the trough had every advantage, voters overwhelmingly passed Initiative 976. It wasn't even close: 66% yes in Pierce County, 59% yes in Snohomish County, 52% in non-Seattle King County, 59% in the 38 counties outside King. It was a...
Merry Christmas everyone. From my family to yours, I wish you all the very best. We all have challenges. We all have obstacles we must overcome. But what should give all of us peace of mind is this: things will work out exactly as they're supposed to. We just need...
