BREAKING NEWS: WA Repubs to King County: Let them walk!

The WA Repubs have blocked an opportunity for King County to VOTE on funding for Mass Transit: Moderate Republicans in the state senate got their wish today: The $10 billion, 10.5-cent gas tax increase for transportation projects failed in the house 48-42 (meaning it’s not going over to the senate), which saved the few centrist senate Republicans from having to vote against it and alienate their constituents who, for example, likely support the $774 million that was earmarked for 405 and the $200 million for 520.

The move will mean a 17% cut in bus services in King County
