The PI.com has the latest on a bill we recenlty flagged in Morning Fizz, Everret-area Rep. Hans Dunshee's (D-44) bill for an $861 million bond measure for a green retrofit of public schools.
Bottom line: State Treasurer Jim McIntire says it would hurt Washington state's bond rating and add $126 million to the state budget per biennium.
We've got a call in to Rep. Dunshee to get a response to McIntire's bad news.
Dunshee says, "[McIntire's] wrong. Moody's expressly says the way to make your bond rating go up is to expand your economy. This is 38,000 jobs a year."
