Mayor McGinn's statement on state Supreme Court ruling

SEATTLE - Today the state Supreme Court issued a ruling stating that a state law requiring a two-thirds vote in the Legislature to increase revenue is unconstitutional.

"I applaud the state Supreme Court's decision. This opens the door to common sense returning to Olympia's process to fully fund education and invest in our transportation system," said Mayor Mike McGinn.
