Rep. Hans Zeiger votes for budget

The state House of Representatives approved a state operating budget for the upcoming two-year budget cycle that starts July 1, 2013. Rep. Hans Zeiger, R-Puyallup, voted in support of the measure and issued this statement:

“This is the first budget that I have been able to support. I am glad that we were finally able to work out a budget agreement that is balanced and prioritizes K-12 education. In fact, it invests at record levels in our schools. It also holds off tuition increases at our colleges and universities and preserves our health and human service safety net. It even avoids the extension of temporary tax increases and the imposition of new business and occupation taxes. I don't like every detail of this budget, but politics requires compromise and collaboration across party lines. Though it took longer than anyone wanted, I was glad to be able to vote for this budget.”
