Marijuana revenue sharing bill introduced in the Senate

Today Sen. Ann Rivers (R-La Center), along with Sen. Mark Mullet (D-Issaquah), and a number of other senators introduced a bill, SB 5417, that would share a portion of the marijuana excise tax with local governments. AWC worked with WSAC and the Senators to craft the bill, which shares 33% of revenue collected with cities and counties. We want to thank Senators Rivers, Mullet, Cleveland, Dansel, Hatfield and Hill for co-sponsoring this very important bill. Securing a share of the excise tax for cities is one of AWC's legislative priorities. For more information, read the AWC Legislative Bulletin on Friday. In the meantime, encourage your Senator to support this legislation.
