Eyman blasts Farrell bill to allow vehicle tax for transportation

Thursday, February 28, 2013

Democratic 46th District State Rep. Jessyn Farrell’s bill to allow large counties to impose a motor-vehicle excise tax for transportation drew a stinging rebuke from Tim Eyman at a legislative hearing Monday.

Eyman was the sponsor of the bill that eliminated the state motor-vehicle excise tax in favor of $30 car tabs.

He called the bill an insult to voters who have repeatedly voted to replace the motor-vehicle excise tax with $30 car tabs.

Farrell has proposed a bill that would allow a 1 percent motor-vehicle excise tax in large counties, with 60 percent of revenue going to transit and 40 percent going to road maintenance.
