Mayor's statement on legislation to reform the Harbor Maintenance Tax

SEATTLE - Today Mayor Mike McGinn released the following statement on legislation being introduced by Senators Murray and Cantwell to reform the Harbor Maintenance Tax:

"I applaud Senators Murray and Cantwell for introducing legislation to reform the Harbor Maintenance Tax. The current system puts the Port of Seattle and our other local ports at a competitive disadvantage, while also not reinvesting the revenues collected by these ports back to where they were collected. Our maritime economy is a cornerstone of our long-term economic growth. This legislation will ensure that it remains a vital part of our economy."
