An editorial in the Spokesman-Review yesterday calls for stiffer fees for using snow tires than the proposed $15 fee included in the Senate transportation budget passed last Friday.
45% of the money raised from that fee would go toward maintenance and repair of state roads. But the article says that’s not enough. The City of Spokane alone estimats its annual stud-related repair costs are almost $5 million, which would come nowhere close to being covered by a $15 fee.
