A New School District Levy Lid: ESSB 5313

The Washington Legislature recently passed ESSB 5313, which resets the school district levy lid for tax collections commencing in 2020. ESSB 5313, which awaits the Governor’s signature, will permit districts to increase tax collections for existing educational programs and operation levies (a/k/a enrichment levies) under certain circumstances. ESSB 5313 also effectively provides an LEA “hold harmless.” Foster Pepper has prepared a White Paper analyzing ESSB 5313 and a variety of scenarios for school districts to consider under the new levy lid.
