Legislators counter Gregoire’s ferry plan

Six Puget Sound state senators formed a bipartisan group to develop a plan in response to the ferry proposal announced earlier this month by Governor Gregoire. The plan is comprised of several bills designed to cut costs through more efficient operations and by addressing high employee costs. C.B. Hall describes the plan in his article, Legislators counter Gregoire’s ferry plan with one of their own, published on Crosscut.com on 1/24/11. The article caught my eye because concerns related to the San Juan Islands are addressed, including an interview with Howie Rosenfeld of our local Ferry Advisory Committee. It’s an interesting read.
