In a King County Journal article on June 9, 2006, Bruce Rommel reports that the Sound Transit Board:
"are ready to ask voters in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties to boost the sales tax by as much as one-half of 1 percent to help fund billions of dollars in transit improvements over the next two decades.
That could make the total sales tax in King County nearly 10 cents on the dollar, and cost households about $125 annually.
"There's voter fatigue," (Pete) von Reichbauer said, adding Sound Transit can go back to the voters every few years asking for a little more money for a few more projects."
Between RTID, Sound Transit Phase 2, Greg Nickels' Seattle roads and bridges tax, and Ron Sims' King County transit tax proposals, we think voters will be exhausted.
