Convention Center Public Facilities District bill passed the Legislature

While we were all acting as the April Fools the Washington State Senate snuck in and passed a couple bills, one of which was SB 6889.

This moves on to the governor to sign.

A new Public Facilities District will appoint nine members for the new board.
The control of the Seattle 7% lodging tax (5+2% tax credit), and the King County 2.8% lodging tax authority shifts to the new PFD no later than June 2011.
