Where Does Rob McKenna Stand on the Devastating Republican Budget Plan?


March 4, 2012

Seattle – Following the hijacking of the state budget by Senate Republicans

on Friday, Dwight Pelz, chair of the Washington State Democratic Party,

issued the following the statement:

"On Friday, we had the misfortune of learning that Republicans will use any

means necessary to push their devastating budget on Washingtonians -

robbing $110 million from education and cutting other critical programs

that assist seniors and our most vulnerable populations. These painful

cuts and outrageous tactics are completely out of touch with Washington


"Now that we know what Republicans have in store, we must stand prepared

to keep them from enacting their disturbing plans. The first order of

business is learning where Rob McKenna stands. As a candidate who says

that he wants to increase funding for education, does Rob McKenna support

his Republican colleagues' cuts to K-12 and higher education?"
