OLYMPIA -- Lawmakers in the Washington state House are seeking more scrutiny of tax breaks.
The House voted 67-29 on Friday to approve a bill that would require tax breaks to have an expiration date and would collect more information about how the tax preferences are used. Democratic Rep. Reuven Carlyle said the proposal is a fiscally responsible plan to provide more examination of tax policies to help lawmakers make better decisions.
Some Republicans opposed the measure, specifically expressing concern about the details that businesses must report.
The measure now goes back to the Senate, which approved a different version of the idea.
