Ballot Measure Aims to Increase Access for Students Traditionally Left Out of the Arts Education Loop
More on the proposition:
- Dubbed “Access for All,” the measure calls for a sales tax increase of 1/10 of one percent to fund arts, science, and heritage programs for King County’s 19 local school districts ― to include free and reduced admission and transportation to educational outings
- The measure, if passed, will provide $67 million dollars, over the next seven years
- Opponents of the proposition claim Access for All will disproportionately impact King County’s lower-income residents, while putting “more crucial” services — housing, mental health, etc. ― on the back burner.
- Ballots were mailed, last week; ballot drop boxes close on election day, August 1, at 8 p.m.
