A compromise on Seattle's head tax, but how will the money be spent?

May 14, 2018

A compromise has been struck over the controversial proposed Head Tax by the Seattle City Council. Over the weekend Councilmember Lorena Gonzalez worked with Mayor Jenny Durkan to come up with a plan they could both support. The new plan would raise an estimated $50 million a year instead of the original $75 million.

And the tax would expire after 5 years.

So will the compromise be enough to please both sides? Crosscut's David Kroman explains.
