Quinn plaintiffs obtain ruling striking down Washington’s capital gains tax on the wealthy

A Dou­glas Coun­ty Supe­ri­or Court judge has ruled that ESSB 5096 isn’t con­sti­tu­tion­al. That deci­sion will be appealed to the Wash­ing­ton State Supreme Court. In the mean­time, some on the right wing are clam­or­ing for an ini­tia­tive to over­turn Wash­ing­ton’s new state cap­i­tal gains tax in the court of pub­lic opin­ion… but NPI’s polling sug­gests vot­ers would­n’t be receptive.
