Today our Executive Director Remy Trupin was invited to speak on the harmful effects of Initiative 1033 on KUOW's The Conversation. During the program, Remy said that 1033 would be:

1. Fiscally irresponsible because it would make it very hard for state, county, and city governments to set aside money for a rainy day.

2. He also noted that the timing of the initiative would be especially damaging, as it comes during an economic recession when revenue is down.

3. Finally, Remy pointed out that the state of Colorado had a terrible experience with a similar initiative that led to dramatically diminished public services and programs.
