WA I-976Initiative Measure No. 976 concerns motor vehicle taxes and fees.
This measure would repeal, reduce, or remove authority to impose certain vehicle taxes and fees; limit annual motor-vehicle-license fees to $30, except voter-approved charges; and base vehicle taxes on Kelley Blue Book value. Should this measure be enacted into law?
If this was all you saw on the ballot, would you understand that the following is one of changes approving the initiative would cause?
WA I-976Any regional transit authority, such as Sound Transit, that has issued bonds financed by a motor vehicle excise tax would be required to defease, refinance, or retire the bonds early, if the bond contracts allow such action. Once the bonds have been defeased, refinanced, or retired, the authority to impose the MVET and the additional sales and use tax on rental cars would be repealed automatically. If the regional transit authority is not able to completely defease, refinance, or retire the bonds by March 31, 2020, any existing voter-approved MVETs would remain unchanged, and the maximum rate of future voter-approved MVETs would be reduced from 0.8% to 0.2%.
Cut 20 billion dollars in funding for public transit expansion WHICH THE PEOPLE VOTED FOR so that farmers in eastern washington can pay less money for car tabs lol.
literally 6 out of the 20 initiatives this guy, Tim Eyman, has introduced were declared unconstitutional by the supreme court, and kingco is going to try and overturn this initiative too
