Group Trying to Raise Benton County Sales Tax

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- A citizen group is once again making a push to increase Benton County's sales tax.

In an effort to better fund crime fighting, the group is proposing to raise the tax to as high as 8.7%.

Last year, Benton County Commissioners refused to put the issue on the November ballot, saying it was unclear what all the increase entailed.
