State Senate transportation leaders released a proposed transportation budget Tuesday with fewer fee increases than put forward by their counterparts in the House. Under the plan, driver’s license fees would increase by 80% and the cost of a title application would spike from $5 to $12.50.
Even so, the plan fell well short of Gov. Chris Gregoire’s call last month for an infusion of $3.6 billion in transportation funds over the next decade. The Spokesman-Review has the details on what’s included in the plan.
