    I have two cars, use the bus and water taxi, and cycle when I can. I support the tab fee, but only hope it really does some good for the overall community. What are the safeguards to making sure these funds are actually used for the intended purpose? My fear is the funds just fall into a general revenue fund, and end up financing additional waste spending.

    Perhaps if we haven’t rushed to pass Tim Eyman (HISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS) I-695 we wouldn’t have to be having this discussion now!

    I agree with Noelle, any picture of an Eagle is beautiful! She/he seem to be debating internally rather to have an afternoon snack. Thank you Patrick for capturing this moment, and thank you TR or whoever remembered to post it! Sorry no Metro comment.

Sorry, comment time is over.
