Big money is flowing into a right wing ballot campaign to repeal state capital gains tax

The com­mit­tee, helmed by long­time Repub­li­can oper­a­tive J. Van­der Stoep, has not dis­closed its plans to the pub­lic, but its aim appears to be to qual­i­fy a mea­sure to the Novem­ber 2022 statewide bal­lot that would com­plete­ly repeal ESSB 5096, the pop­u­lar 2021 law that levied a cap­i­tal gains tax on the wealthy to fund ear­ly learn­ing, child­care, and K‑12 education.
