It’s interesting to see that our devoted governor seems to agree with Tim Eyman that there is less need than anticipated for inflationary car tab fees.
Ads on TV are indicating that bridges will fall, streets will not be repaired, and police response will be impaired if we do not continue to pay more and more for our vehicle tabs.
Inslee disagrees. In Jerry Cornfield’s column (“A veto too far? Lawmakers may sue Inslee to figure it out,” The Herald, Aug. 29) the governor has explained that the moneys for these projects were not used last year and can be transferred to other accounts. If that is so, then we should not be expected to artificially inflate those accounts with our vehicle tab fees.
The leaders of the House and Senate seem to disagree with Inslee. But Fearless Leader is much better informed than they. His perception clears the way for us, the taxpayers to vote the tab fees back down.
Let the budget committees take that into account next season.
