Special: Election 2006


Washington's estate tax could be eliminated if I-920 passes tomorrow. Hear Bill Gates, Sr. co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Frank Blethen, publisher of the Seattle Times, discuss their thoughts on the estate tax, or..death tax. Were he to pay the estate tax today, Bill Gates, Sr. says he would pay millions to the government, and he's alright with that. Blethen, on the other hand, is supporting the initiative that would repeal the estate tax. Also hear interviews with Democratic Senator Maria Cantwell and her Republican challenger, Mike McGavick. In tonight's special, you'll hear many KUOW election news stories, about King County Proposition 2 (on raising the sales tax and increasing bus funding), about voting machine concerns, Initiative 933, Initiative 937, and more.
