TGIF: THANK GOD IT'S FINISHED - -2005 LEGISLATURE

Do we the tax payers have any recourse to the bloated budget that has been handed to us?
Thank God to Day is the last day of the session. I don't think the people of the State could take much more.

The Democrats back door-ed the license tab limit with weight fees.
The Democrat have done away with I- 601 and began blowing money on every thing there special interest group contributers wanted.
Once the total assessment of what this historic session of the legislature has burdened the people of Washington with, I would hope there will be some changes in the House and Senate in the next couple of elections.

I think it is time to pull the Democrats feeding tube.

Second time's a charm: House passes gas tax hike


By DAVID AMMONS
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER



OLYMPIA, Wash. -- The state House passed an $8.5 billion transportation package Sunday, a day after Republicans derailed it.

The measure, which includes a 9.5 cent gas tax hike, passed on a 54-43 vote. It was defeated Saturday when leaders could only muster 45 votes, five shy of the bare minimum needed for passage.

A revote was taken Sunday, and applause broke out on the floor after it was approved.

The measure passed on a 56-42 vote and heads to the Senate for consideration, before it can go to Gov. Christine Gregoire, who has said she will sign it.
