Regarding the proposed $30 car tab initiative — I-976 — in my opinion, this is definitely not in the best interest of the citizens of Washington state. I will admit that my knowledge of the whole situation is minimal, but I do have an opinion. First of all, $30 for car tabs is ridiculously low. Granted it will help some, but in order to make up for the shortfall that Sound Transit will be hit with for its $54 billion ST3 project, there is a significant amount that will have to be made up somewhere, maybe in the form of higher taxes.
I do believe that the alternative will hurt more people in the long run. If this comes to the ballot, I am hoping that the people voting will think very hard about voting yes.
