Senator Steve O’Ban, R-University Place, and Representative Mark Harmsworth, R-Mill Creek, hosted a news conference on Feb. 1 to discuss Sound Transit legislation.
The media availability focused on legislation that would cut car tab fees, hold Sound Transit accountable to taxpayers, stop Sound Transit from imposing property taxes on homeowners who weren’t given the opportunity to vote for Sound Transit, and force Sound Transit to go back to taxpayers for approval if it anticipates spending more than the $54 billion it said it needed to complete the projects it promised voters to get their support for ST3.
