The measure would create the Washington Tourism Marketing Authority to manage statewide tourism efforts and require the collection of a 0.2 percent of sales tax on lodging, car rentals and restaurants to fund the statewide marketing plan. The measure is now awaiting signatures from House and Senate leaders.
