SJR 8212 would have amended the Washington State Constitution to expand the list of lands which could have qualified under the 1967 constitutional amendment to be valued for tax purposes based upon current use. The amendment would have permitted the Washington State Legislature to provide on such conditions that it may enact that property devoted to low-income housing, consisting of five or more dwelling units which comply with health and safety standards, could be valued for property tax purposes based on the current use of the property. At the time this propostion was proposed, the state constitution provided that all taxes be uniform on the same class of property.
