Initiative I-976 is on the fall ballot. Known as the “Bring Back Our $30 Car Tabs” the law would limit annual motor vehicle license fees to $30, except voter-approved charges, repeal and remove authority to impose certain vehicle taxes and charges; and base vehicle taxes on Kelley Blue Book. You can see the full text of the law here.

Wednesday night the Everett City Council unanimously passed a resolution (Councilmember Jeff Moore was absent) opposing I-976 saying it would cause extreme harm to the development and maintenance of the City of Everett’s transportation infrastructure, thereby jeopardizing economic growth and quality of life in Everett, Washington and throughout the region.
