Last Monday, House Bill 1180, which would give Sound Transit authority to take a new capital and service improvement funding package (“ST3” as we like to call it) to the district’s voters, was passed out of the House Transportation Committee. On Thursday, the bill was referred over to the House Finance Committee.
The next step for the bill is to get a hearing in the Finance Committee, at the discretion of Committee Chair Reuven Carlyle (D – representing the Ballard, Queen Anne, and Magnolia neighborhoods of Seattle).
