State Rep. Farrell says priorities continue to be education, safety net and money for Metro transit

Democratic 46th District State Rep. Jessyn Farrell started the special legislative session saying that her priorities continue to be “education, preserving our social safety net, and making sure that King County has the local options it needs to keep Metro from cutting 17 percent of its service next year.

The House and Senate continue to disagree on money for education and social programs.

Farrell has sponsored a bill to give King County the option of asking voters to pass a motor-vehicle excise tax to support transit. The bill and a companion bill in the Senate have been revived in the special session, but the legislature has yet to act on either.

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