Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

The Board of Fire Commissioners of Pierce County Fire Protection District No. 23 adopted Resolution No. 12-002 proposing to authorize a new regular property tax levy rate. If passed, Proposition No. 1 would permit the District to levy for collection in 2013 the regular property tax at the rate of $1.50 per $1,000 of assessed valuation, thereby lifting the revenue limitation in Chapter 84.55 RCW. Should Proposition No. 1 be approved?[3]
