The House and Senate have basically swapped bills. Now, the Senate is taking up the 1 percent limit bill that was passed by the House, and the House will be debating the Senate tax deferral bill.

Gov. Chris Gregoire is expected to sign both bills tonight if they reach her desk, as expected.

Here’s how South Sound senators voted on Senate Bill 6178, which would allow households with incomes up to $57,000 to defer half of their property tax payments:


Tracy Eide, D-Federal Way

Rosa Franklin, D-Tacoma

Karen Fraser, D-Olympia

Claudia Kauffman, D-Kent

Karen Keiser, D-Kent

Derek Kilmer, D-Gig Harbor

Joe McDermott, D-West Seattle

Marilyn Rasmussen, D-Eatonville


Mike Carrell, R-Lakewood

Jim Kastama, D-Puyallup

Pam Roach, R-Auburn

Dan Swecker, R-Rochester


Debbie Regala, D-Tacoma
