The language for Prop. 1, according to the Voter’s Pamphlet:
The Board of Directors of the King County Rural Library District adopted Resolution No. 2009-11 concerning an increase in the Districtâ€™s regular property tax levy. In order to provide continued funding for the normal operation and maintenance of the King County library system, this proposition would authorize the District to restore regular property tax levy rate to $0.50 per thousand dollars of assessed value for collection in 2011, and to increase the levy in each year thereafter as allowed by chapter 84.55 RCW. Should this proposition be approved?
