25 SCPTSA Resolution for a NO on Initiative 1033 A RESOLUTION of the Seattle Council PTSA General Membership, PTSA 6.15, Seattle, Washington against Initiative 1033. WHEREAS, Initiative 1033 would establish new limits on the growth in Washington State general fund revenues, of which approximately 42 percent currently supports K-12 education; and WHEREAS, Initiative 1033 will reduce state revenue by an estimated $5.9 billion by 2015 (as estimated by the Office of Financial Management), and thereby further erode K-12 funding by an estimated $2.4 billion in the State of Washington; and WHEREAS, Initiative 1033 is on the ballot in a year when the Washington Legislature reduced funding for K-12 public schools by $1.5 billion, cuts that have negatively impacted our local schools, staff and students; and WHEREAS, Initiative 1033 will lock in the current budget cuts for years and likely force further cuts to public services resulting in additional job losses, more hard times for Washington families and a longer delay before our economy recovers; and WHEREAS, Initiative 1033 will likely prevent the State from making progress towards revamping the State’s K-12 education finance system by revising the way the State defines and pays for basic education; and WHEREAS, Initiative 1033 would clearly hurt the State’s efforts to promote student learning, achievement and school accountability, and WHEREAS, Initiative 1033 will undoubtedly have a devastating impact on K-12 education in our local community and in the State of Washington. NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Seattle Council General Membership PTSA l shall join with the Washington State PTA, Washington Education Association, Seattle Council PTSA Board, Shoreline PTA General Membership, and others, in opposing the passage of Initiative 1033 and endorse a “No-Vote on I-1033”. 25
