The Freedom Foundation releases its Big Spender List annually. The Institute ranks all Washington legislators based on their total proposed tax and fee increases. To find each legislator’s total, the Institute adds up the 10-year tax increases or decreases, as estimated by Washington’s Office of Financial Management, of all bills sponsored or co-sponsored by that legislator. [5]

Ladenburg proposed a 10-year decrease in state taxes and fees of $403.2 million, the 92nd highest amount of proposed new net taxes and fees of the 93 Washington state representatives on the Freedom Foundation’s 2012 Big Spender List.[6]
