Progressive State Income Tax for Washington State


Washington State Patrol

Eric Paulsen 

            Another very useful application of the increased revenue from a Washington State progressive state income tax, would be to adequately fund the Washington State Patrol.  The following graphs show how historically funding has not kept up with the state's population.  When this happens there are fewer State Patrol, per each 1000 of the populaition. This would be one cause of higher crime rates.
