State legislators get another chance to make transportation-money moves that could keep Metro Transit from slashing service as threatened. They’re going back for a special session on Thursday, as ordered today by Gov. Inslee. Main purpose: To pass incentives for Boeing to build the 777X here. And a transportation package is listed as one of the “elements” of those incentives. The State House passed a transportation-funding package last session; the State Senate held it up. Local leaders are voicing their hopes it’ll go through this time; via Facebook, County Councilmember Joe McDermott (a former state senator) says, “I implore the Legislature to find a compromise during the upcoming special session and avert this catastrophe.”
