         Lower taxes means less revenue for the State of Washington which naturally reduces revenue that the Legislature has to work with when trying to agree on a budget.  In order to arrive at a "balanced budget" the Legislature has had to raise tuition at Washington State's major universities.  A progressive state income tax could be used to raise revenue and provide the Legislature with revenue that would allow it to continue to lower tuition.
