Convention Center bill keeps moving on Friday

Friday in the Washington State Senate Ways & Means Committee they will have an Executive Session to voteon passing SB 6889 out of committee.

Like a rocket from a bottle shot free, this legislation was launched in draft form on Wednesday when it had a hearing, then transformed in SB 6889. Two days later a potential $57 million dollar cost of inaction by the state propelled the legislation on its current trajectory.

Again, this legislation is the same as HB 3027.
This allows the state to keep $57 million dollars the state has taken in the past. Not passing means the state ends up in court and could lose that $57 million dollars.
This legislation creates a new Public Facilities District in King County.
Let's build stuff!
