Proposal for new tool for infrastructure investment

HB 1383 would allow cities to create an apportionment district and impose a special property tax within the district on the incremental property value increase within the district. The bill is sponsored by Rep. Larry Springer (D – Kirkland) and will be heard on Tuesday, January 27 at 1:30 pm in the Community Development, Housing & Tribal Affairs Committee. Since Washington is one of the few states where tax increment financing is not permissible, cities are always looking for ways to finance infrastructure investment.

If this a tool that would be useful for your city, please let your legislators know.
