Washington State is one of the few states that does not allow tax increment financing, which would benefit local <br /> government tax revenue and infrastructure financing. The information on the coalition effort is in the email below and <br /> the attachment, and is being led by the Washington Economic Development Association (WEDA) which is the association <br /> of local economic development offices. <br /> Let me know,thanks- Bill <br /> With the historic and unprecedented economic recession provoked by the COVID-19 pandemic devastating <br /> communities, businesses and families, we need tools and resources to recover.Authorizing Tax Increment Financing <br /> (TIF) is one critical action Washington State lawmakers can take in the 2021 legislative session to help communities <br /> across the state recover,grow construction jobs and catalyze the growth of additional jobs, spark re-investment and <br /> foster vibrant communities. <br /> 1 <br />
