Debate Scheduled for 2/3's Measure
A debate is scheduled tonight in Yakima for those in support and opposing a measure that would make it more difficult for city council members to raise taxes.
The Citizens for Two-Thirds measure will appear on November's ballot -- if passed, it would require five out of seven council members to vote in favor of a proposed tax increase.
However, some parties argue it would stifle the council and make it more difficult to accomplish tasks.
The debate will start at 7 p.m. at Yakima City Hall following the Yakima City Council candidate debate.
