Friday Phone Briefing
2014 Week 7: Guest Speaker - House Appropriations Chair Rep. Ross Hunter
Rep. Ross Hunter, chair of the House Appropriations Committee, joined AWB’s Friday Phone Briefing for a discussion about the two remaining weeks of the 2014 legislative session. He was joined by AWB Vice President of Communications Jocelyn McCabe, APR, and Richard Davis, president of the Washington Policy Center.
Hunter emphasized that the session would end on March 13, as scheduled, but said time is tight to finish budget negotiations. He gave his perspective on tax preferences and new revenue, the details of how a “levy swap” could help bridge the McCleary school funding gap, and why it makes sense to link teacher and principal evaluations to student test scores.
