Wash. lawmakers OK school upgrades ballot measure

The Washington Legislature is asking voters to support energy-efficiency renovations at schools around the state.

The measure sends about $500 million in bonds to the November ballot. The House gave final legislative approval to the bill on a a 59-38 vote Monday night.

The idea is to spur construction jobs by paying for energy-efficiency renovations at public schools and universities. A new sales tax on bottled water would be extended to help cover the costs.

The sponsor is Rep. Hans Dunshee, D-Snohomish. He says it would create about 30,000 jobs. Republicans argue it adds too much to the state's debt.
