Seattle Times urges ‘no’ vote on $60 car tab hike to fund Metro buses, road improvements

As KVI’s John Carlson has been saying for four months, the April 22nd special election to raise King County car tabs $60 dollars (and a 0.1% sales tax increase) should be flatly rejected because of King County Executive Dow Constantine and the County Council’s inability to allocate a sustainable budget. Substitute host Lars Larson talks about the ‘vote no’ editorial and the growing amount of US Dept. of Transportation data that show buses and rail are more expensive to operate than cars.
