Washington legislators talk tax relief, dams

Washington legislators attend a luncheon Tuesday at the Clarkston Event Center.

State lawmakers from the 9th District are gearing up for a 60-day session in Olympia with hopes of repealing the long-term care tax, protecting the dams on the lower Snake River and providing some tax relief to their eastern Washington constituents.

Sen. Mark Schoesler, R-Ritzville, Rep. Joe Schmick, R-Colfax, and Mary Dye, R-Pomeroy, outlined their agendas Tuesday at a legislative send-off luncheon in Clarkston hosted by Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories and the Lewis Clark Valley Chamber of Commerce.
