CORRECTION: Farrell bill would allow 1 percent motor-vehicle excise tax in counties other than King

The bill that Democratic 46th District State Rep. Jessyn Farrell introduced to allow large counties to impose a motor-vehicle excise tax to pay for transportation would allow a smaller tax than our recent report said it would allow.

The bill calls for a vehicle excise tax of 1 percent, not the 1.5 percent reported in a press release from Farrell’s office and apply to counties with populations of more than 700,000 rather than the 1 million reported in the press release. That means that the bill would apply to Pierce and Snohomish counties as well as King County.

Farrell's 46th Legislative District includes Lake Forest Park, Kenmore and northeast Seattle.
