    Name: AGC Public Policy Forum
    Date: October 12, 2023
    Time: 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM PDT
    Event Description:
    Learn more about Spokane County's Measure 1 from Commissioner Mary Kuney, Sheriff John Nowles and Law and Justice Director Mike Sparber. The proposed measure is on the ballot for this year's general election.

    What is Measure 1?
    In December 2022, the Spokane Board of County Commissioners voted to place a sales and use tax increase on the November 7, 2023 General Election ballot, pursuant to RCW 82.14.450.  If approved, Measure No. 1 would authorize the County to impose an additional 0.2% (2/10th of 1%) County-wide sales and use tax.  That would be an additional .02¢ from every $10 spent within Spokane County by residents, visitors and tourists.  60% of the collected funds will be allocated to Spokane County government and 40% provided to cities and towns within Spokane County for criminal justice, public safety and behavioral health purposes. Spokane County would allocate funds from the new sales tax to improve facilities and processes at all phases of inmate detention and release, including in custody, release and reentry and criminal justice reform/improvement. The revenue will be used for criminal justice, public safety, drug and alcohol treatment, behavioral health programs, and inmate job training.
