HB 1129- Funding for new ferries

This afternoon at 3:30 p.m. there will be a public hearing on House Bill 1129, put forward by Jeff Morris. Here is the official digest of what this bill will do:

Requires a county auditor or other agent appointed by the director of the department of licensing to collect a service fee of five dollars for each initial vehicle registration and registration renewal processed by that county auditor’s or other agent’s office. Directs the service fee to be deposited into the capital vessel replacement account.

The Ferry Community Partnership supports this bill as a potential source of ongoing revenue to replace our aging fleet. Please take a moment this morning to send a supporting email to Jeff Morris (jeff.morris@leg.wa.gov) or Kris Lytton (kristine.lytton@leg.wa.gov). Learn more about this bill here.
