State Lawmakers pass property tax caps

Posted: Updated:

Yakima, WA -    Not even a month after the state supreme court ruled Initiative 747 unconstitutional, property tax caps have now become law.

The governor called a special session so lawmakers could pass the bill to basically reinstate the 1% property tax cap that voters approved six years ago with I-747.

But initiative king Tim Eyman says voters shouldn't be fooled into thinking the bill and I-747 are the same thing.
