Murray on Tuesday announced a proposed $60 car tab increase and a sales tax increase to buy bus service back from King County Metro. Metro has said bus service will be cut this fall after the state Legislature did not find more money for transit and King County voters defeated a tax increase.
The proposal, which will likely go before Seattle voters in November, is similar to the county-wide proposal, which passed in Seattle.
It follows an announcement on Monday by King County Executive Dow Constantine inviting cities to buy back the proposed bus cuts.
Both Murray and Constantine say the Legislature needs to find a permanent solution.
