Cut health care for 30,000 women and babies – or end sales tax exemption for out-of-state coal?

Which public investment will pay off in a better future for our state?

A $23 million cut in King County health programs approved by the Legislature last month means layoffs in Maternity Support Services, a program that improves infant survival and health by providing a range of services to 30,000 women and babies.

Meanwhile a sales tax exemption for out-of-state coal worth…you guessed it, $23.7 million…is still on the books.
