STALLING ON TRANSPORATION FUNDING: A PROFILE OF INITIATIVE 976

An Initiative on the ballot this November aims to reduce Washington’s tax burden by lowering your vehicle license fee to $30, less than half of what the average car owner in the state pays today. According to the State Office of Financial Management’s recent fiscal analysis, the result removes at least $4.2 billion from state and local coffers over the next six years, putting the brakes on state and local transportation spending.

Knowing the Waters - A Monthly Column from WPPA Counsel Frank Chmelik

KNOWING THE WATERS: AUGUST 2019

This month’s column focuses on a change to RCW 53.08.245 – the port district “economic development” statute - that expands the ability of port districts to provide workforce development. Since 1911, the legislature has looked to port districts to be the economic development engines for their communities. In the early part of the 20th century “economic development” meant development of docks, wharves, jetties and other transportation infrastructure. Flash-forward one-hundred years and the list of “economic development” powers are broad and expanding including cooperative watershed management, trade and tourism and development of broadband infrastructure.
