Weekly news roundup

Your ferry news for the week of January 6th – 12th.

Two articles this week discuss the financial challenges facing WSF due to Coast Guard-mandated staffing levels and the lack of permanent, stable funding sources.

The San Juan Journal reports on the San Juan Ferry Advisory Committee’s (FAC) position on a proposal to reduce staffing on some boats by limiting access to the upper deck during the winter season (excluding holidays).

The Kitsap Sun reports on legislative discussions for this year’s challenge of plugging the funding gap in WSF’s budget, without pitting ferries against other transportation needs.
