A public hearing over Seattle's proposed head tax turned tense Monday night.
The Seattle City Council has proposed to tax big businesses per employee to pay for homelessness services and affordable housing.
A crowd packed into council chambers Monday evening and started chanting. This prompted councilmember Sally Bagshaw to ask security to clear the room and allow the public back in, 10 at a time.
Councilmember Kshama Sawant told her, "I don't agree with that decision, they're just chanting."
Eventually, the crowd was allowed to return and the public hearing continued.
