A week after a federal court judge denied a temporary restraining order that would have allowed Slidewaters to open in defiance of the state’s lingering COVID-19 shutdown order
The Freedom Foundation has renewed its pledge from previous years to file a lawsuit challenging any capital gains income tax passed by the Democrat-controlled Washington State Legislature in 2019.
This week, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments in two federal lawsuits against unions brought by the Freedom Foundation in partnership with the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation. One case is the first of its kind to reach a federal circuit court and both are nationally significant.
Records obtained by the Freedom Foundation from Gov. Jay Inslee’s office under the state Public Records Act indicate the governor worked with government unions during the 2018 legislative session on legislation intended to undermine public employees’ First Amendment rights.
After the Freedom Foundation filed a federal class-action lawsuit to end the abusive practice, SEIU 775 will cease deducting union dues without permission from the wages of thousands of home caregivers serving Medicaid-eligible clients. The unauthorized seizures totaled an estimated $14 million since 2014.
Gov. Jay Inslee signed SB 6199, which sets the stage for the union representing the state’s 36,000 individual provider home care aides (IPs), SEIU 775, to force all caregivers to again pay union dues as a condition of serving Medicaid recipients.
It is disappointing, though not surprising, to see Gov. Inslee prioritize his special interest campaign donors above the caregivers and taxpayers of Washington. By the time he signed SB 6199, more than 1,000 individual providers had contacted the governor’s office asking him to veto the bill.
