Here is the latest video update from 35th District State Representative Position 2, Drew MacEwen:
Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics will be presenting another FIRST AID/CPR/First Aid class on Thursday, March 12, 2015 from 5 to 9 p.m. at the Hospital’s Learning Center, located next to McDonald’s on Olympic Highway North. This certificate class requires a non-refundable registration fee of $35 (exact cash or check) payable in advance.
Rep. Drew MacEwen, R-Union, introduced a bill to update and simplify the state’s business and occupation (B&O) tax. House Bill 2150 would eliminate the tax burden on over 285,000 businesses in Washington state by ending preferences built in to the tax structure since its inception in the 1930s. MacEwen’s plan is revenue neutral, meaning there will be no impact on the budget writing process, but would provide Washington’s economy with a modern tax structure to help grow the economy.
