Rep. Norm Johnson calls carbon proposal “a cheap attempt to raise taxes” on KIHR


Rep. Norm Johnson, R-Yakima, rails against proposed capital gains and carbon taxes, saying the carbon proposal would be harmful to the economy and ineffective at reducing carbon, and discusses the funding and governance of K-12 education with KIHR’s Mark Bailey. Johnson also recounts how his bill extending local government access to state infrastructure funds was “resurrected” after appearing to be dead at the policy cutoff deadline and talks about what it will take to breathe similar life into his stalled legislation on long-term care next year.
