and the same are herewith transmitted.

SECOND READING


             SUBSTITUTE SENATE BILL NO. 5248, by Senate Committee on Highways & Transportation (originally sponsored by Senators Horn, Haugen, Prentice, Oke and Stevens)


             Achieving transportation workforce efficiencies.


             The bill was read the second time.


             There being no objection, the committee amendment by the Committee on Transportation was adopted. (For committee amendment, see Journal, 73rd Day, March 26, 2003.)


             With the consent of the House, amendments (331), (335), and (334) were withdrawn.


MOTION


             On motion of Representative Clements, Representative Delvin was excused.


             Representative Ericksen moved the adoption of amendment (357):


              Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:


              The legislature finds that there is a pressing need for reform of the way in which the transportation system in Washington is constructed and maintained. The legislature finds that if the private sector can perform a service faster and in a more economical manner than state government, as demonstrated under chapter 354, Laws of 2002, then the department of transportation should not be hindered by state law from providing services in the most cost- effective manner. The legislature also finds that reforming current laws governing the payment of prevailing wages to ensure the accuracy of such wages is necessary to recapture public support for future expansion of the transportation system in Washington. The legislature intends that ten pilot projects should be conducted in a wide variety of locations in Washington state, both urban and rural, to test the process of having the department of transportation draft its own permits, subject to a single review by the regulatory agencies, in order to evaluate the use of this streamlined process.


                            (1) Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, the matters subject to bargaining include wages, hours, and other terms and conditions of employment, and the negotiation of any question arising under a collective bargaining agreement.

              (2) The employer is not required to bargain over matters pertaining to:

              (a) Health care benefits or other employee insurance benefits, except as required in subsection (3) of this section;

              (b) Any retirement system or retirement benefit; or

              (c) Rules of the director of personnel or the Washington personnel resources board adopted under section 203, chapter 354, Laws of 2002.

              (3) Matters subject to bargaining include the number of names to be certified for vacancies, promotional preferences, and the dollar amount expended on behalf of each employee for health care benefits. However, except as provided otherwise in this subsection for institutions of higher education, negotiations regarding the number of names to be certified for vacancies, promotional preferences, and the dollar amount expended on behalf of each employee for health care benefits shall be conducted between the employer and one coalition of all the exclusive bargaining representatives subject to this chapter. Any such provision agreed to by the employer and the coalition shall be included in all master collective bargaining agreements negotiated by the parties. For institutions of higher education, promotional preferences and the number of names to be certified for vacancies shall be bargained under the provisions of RCW 41.80.010(4).

              (4) The employer and the exclusive bargaining representative shall not agree to any proposal that would prevent the implementation of approved affirmative action plans or that would be inconsistent with the comparable worth agreement that provided the basis for the salary changes implemented beginning with the 1983-1985 biennium to achieve comparable worth.

              (5) The employer and the exclusive bargaining representative shall not bargain over matters pertaining to:

              (a) Management rights established in RCW 41.80.040; or

              (b) With respect to the department of transportation, the department's purchase of services by contract or any matters governed by RCW 41.06.142.

              (6) Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, if a conflict exists between an executive order, administrative rule, or agency policy relating to wages, hours, and terms and conditions of employment and a collective bargaining agreement negotiated under this chapter, the collective bargaining agreement shall prevail. A provision of a collective bargaining agreement that conflicts with the terms of a statute is invalid and unenforceable.

              (((7) This section does not prohibit bargaining that affects contracts authorized by RCW 41.06.142.))


                            (1) The committee shall select and conduct permit reform pilot projects in three locales: (a) Urban near built-out conditions; (b) urban centers serving as crucial rural connectors; and (c) rural corridors critical to statewide economic productivity. The pilot projects must test the assignment of responsibilities such as selected permit drafting and selected compliance activities to the department.

              (2) The committee shall commence efforts to apply streamlining lessons learned from the streamlined permit process for the pilot projects to as many other transportation projects of statewide significance as quickly as possible. In reporting to the legislature, the committee may recommend statutory or regulatory changes that would result in streamlining for future projects.

              (3) The department and permitting agencies shall apply an interim interdisciplinary permit review process for the pilot projects as set forth in this section. This process must provide coordinated review and approval of permit applications; provide coordinated and consolidated public hearings where required by one or more regulatory agencies under state law; and coordinate timelines for permit decision making.

              (4) The committee shall give notice to the legislative authority of each affected county and city of the projects the committee has designated as pilot projects. Each county and city notified must be offered the opportunity to participate in the pilot projects as provided for in this chapter. The department shall provide funding assistance for participation.

              (5) The committee shall develop a dispute resolution process to resolve conflicts in interpretation of environmental standards and best management practices, mitigation requirements, permit requirements, assigned responsibilities, the streamlined process for pilot projects set forth in this section, and other related issues by September 1, 2001. The dispute resolution process may not abrogate or supplant any appeal right of any party under existing statutes. The dispute resolution process must be designed to include federal agencies if they choose to participate. The dispute resolution process must be applied to the pilot projects.

              (6) The streamlined process for the pilot projects must be based on the following model:

              (a) Step 1: The department and permitting agencies will agree on coordination for environmental review under the state and national environmental policy acts, including document preparation, public comment opportunities, and timelines.

              (b) Step 2: For each project, the department will convene a meeting of all entities with permitting authority to review:

              (i) The proposed conceptual design for the project and alternative routes, construction approaches, or mitigation approaches;

              (ii) All known reviewing entities, permit application and approval requirements, and timelines; and

              (iii) A coordinated timeline that allows all statutory requirements to be met.

              (c) Step 3: The department will draft all necessary permits to proceed with the preferred alternative using relevant agreements with permitting agencies.

              (d) Step 4: The department will provide public notice in conformity with all applicable statutes and regulations and allow the required time for public hearings and written comments.

              (e) Step 5: The department may revise the draft permits after consideration of public comments and applying all relevant agreed upon standards.

              (f) Step 6: All permits will be disseminated to permitting agencies for final review. All reviews will be completed within forty- five days, at which time the permitting agencies will act upon the permit and either approve the permit or return it without approval.

              (g) Step 7: If the permit is returned to the department without approval, the permitting agencies will have one opportunity to identify errors or omissions and any remaining specific deficiencies or circumstances not previously addressed by agreements between the department and agencies that must be met or addressed to be compliant with applicable law. The department may revise the permit as warranted and resubmit the permit to the permitting agency, which will have fifteen days from receipt of the revised permit to take final action.

              (h) Step 8: Disputes related to permit decisions will be addressed by the dispute resolution process established by the committee.

              (7) The committee shall select ten projects from the project lists that accompany any transportation budget passed in 2003 that are funded but do not yet have state permits in place. The committee should select projects in both urban and rural areas located from a wide variety of locations within Washington state. These will be designated as "Department of Transportation Permit Drafting Pilot Projects." These projects are not required to be projects of statewide significance under this chapter. The department of transportation will draft its own state permits under RCW 47.06C.080(2) and using a timeline developed by the committee. These permits drafted by the department are subject to a single review by state regulatory agencies before approval or denial. The process must be monitored by the committee and used to implement increased drafting of permits by the department of transportation on other projects.


                            (1) The "prevailing rate of wage", for the intents and purposes of this chapter, shall be the rate of hourly wage, usual benefits, and overtime paid in the locality, as hereinafter defined, to the majority of workers, laborers, or mechanics, in the same trade or occupation. In the event that there is not a majority in the same trade or occupation paid at the same rate, then the average rate of hourly wage and overtime paid to such laborers, workers, or mechanics in the same trade or occupation shall be the prevailing rate. If the wage paid by any contractor or subcontractor to laborers, workers, or mechanics on any public work is based on some period of time other than an hour, the hourly wage for the purposes of this chapter shall be mathematically determined by the number of hours worked in such period of time.

              (2) The "locality" ((for the purposes of this chapter shall be the largest city in)) is the county wherein the physical work is being performed.

              (3) The "usual benefits" for the purposes of this chapter shall include the amount of:

              The appropriations in this section are subject to the following conditions and limitations:

              (1) The commission may oversee up to four pilot projects implementing the use of traffic safety cameras to detect speeding, and violations at railroad crossings and stoplights.

              (a) In order to ensure adequate time in the 2003-05 biennium to evaluate the effectiveness of the pilot program, any projects authorized by the commission must be authorized by December 31, 2003.

              (b) If a county or city has established an authorized automated traffic safety camera program under this section, the compensation paid to the manufacturer or vendor of the equipment used must be based only upon the value of the equipment and services provided or rendered in support of the system, and may not be based upon a portion of the fine or civil penalty imposed or the revenue generated by the equipment.

              (c) The traffic safety commission shall use the following guidelines to administer the program:

              (i) Traffic safety cameras may take pictures of the vehicle and vehicle license plate only, and only while an infraction is occurring;

              (ii) The law enforcement agency of the city or county government shall plainly mark the locations where the automated traffic enforcement system is used by placing signs on street locations that clearly indicate to a driver that he or she is entering a zone where traffic laws are enforced by an automated traffic enforcement system;

              (iii) Cities and counties using traffic safety cameras must provide periodic notice by mail to its citizens indicating the zones in which the traffic safety cameras will be used;

              (iv) Notices of infractions must be mailed to the registered owner of a vehicle within fourteen days of the infraction occurring;

              (v) The owner of the vehicle is not responsible for the violation if the owner of the vehicle, within fourteen days of receiving notification of the violation, mails to the issuing law enforcement agency, a declaration under penalty of perjury, stating that the vehicle involved was, at the time, stolen or in the care, custody, or control of some person other than the registered owner, or any other extenuating circumstances;

              (vi) Infractions detected through the use of traffic safety cameras are not part of the registered owner's driving record under RCW 46.52.101 and 46.52.120;

              (vii) If a notice of infraction is sent to the registered owner and the registered owner is a rental car business, the infraction will be dismissed against the business if it mails to the issuing agency, within fourteen days of receiving the notice, a declaration under penalty of perjury of the name and known mailing address of the individual driving or renting the vehicle when the infraction occurred. If the business is unable to determine who was driving or renting the vehicle at the time the infraction occurred, the business must sign a declaration under penalty of perjury to this effect. The declaration must be mailed to the issuing agency within fourteen days of receiving the notice of traffic infraction. Timely mailing of this declaration to the issuing agency relieves a rental car business of any liability under this section for the notice of infraction. A declaration form suitable for this purpose must be included with each automated traffic infraction notice issued, along with instructions for its completion and use;

              (viii) For purposes of the pilot projects, infractions generated by the use of traffic safety cameras will be exempt from the provisions of RCW 3.50.100 and will be processed in the same manner as parking violations; and

              (ix) By June 30, 2005, the traffic safety commission shall provide a report to the legislature regarding the use, public acceptance, outcomes, and other relevant issues regarding traffic safety cameras demonstrated by the pilot projects.

              The appropriations in this section are subject to the following conditions and limitations:

              (1) $4,000,000 of the multimodal transportation account--state appropriation is provided solely for a grant program for nonprofit providers of transportation for persons with special transportation needs. The priority in use of these moneys shall be to provide additional service. Grants may be for capital purposes as long as additional service is provided or to maintain service which otherwise may be terminated.

Additional criteria for selecting projects will include leveraging funds other than state funds, estimated usage, convenience to commuter routes, and corridor congestion.

              (4) $9,500,000 of the multimodal transportation account--state appropriation is provided solely for the rural mobility grant program. Priority will be given to grants that add service. Capital grants can be included as long as additional service is added or the grant would keep current service from being reduced or eliminated.

              (5) $5,000,000 of the multimodal transportation account--state appropriation is provided solely for a vanpool grant program for public transit agencies. The grant program will cover capital costs only; no operating costs are eligible for funding under this grant program.

              The appropriation in this section is provided to the Washington state ferries to implement the 5.5.5 strategic plan subject to the following modifications, conditions, and limitations:

              (1) The appropriation is based on the budgeted expenditure of $32,660,000 for vessel operating fuel in the 2003-2005 biennium. If the actual cost of fuel is less than this budgeted amount, the excess amount may not be expended. If the actual cost exceeds this amount, the department shall request a supplemental appropriation.

              (2) The appropriation provides for the compensation of ferry employees. The expenditures for compensation paid to ferry employees during the 2003-2005 biennium may not exceed $211,387,000 plus a dollar amount, as prescribed by the office of financial management, that is equal to any insurance benefit increase granted general government employees in excess of $520.27 a month annualized per eligible marine employee multiplied by the number of eligible marine employees for fiscal year 2004 and $606.25 a month annualized per eligible marine employee multiplied by the number of eligible marine employees for fiscal year 2005, a dollar amount as prescribed by the office of financial management for costs associated with pension amortization charges, and a dollar amount prescribed by the office of financial management for salary increases during the 2003-2005 biennium. For the purposes of this section, the expenditures for compensation paid to ferry employees shall be limited to salaries and wages and employee benefits as defined in the office of financial management's policies, regulations, and procedures named under objects of expenditure "A" and "B" (7.2.6.2).

              The prescribed salary increase or decrease dollar amount that shall be allocated from the governor's compensation appropriations is in addition to the appropriation contained in this section and may be used to increase or decrease compensation costs, effective July 1, 2003, and thereafter, as established in the 2003-2005 general fund operating budget.

              (3) The Washington state ferries will continue to provide on-going service to Sidney, British Columbia.

              (4) The Washington state ferries will provide on-going commuter passenger-only ferry service on the Vashon-Seattle, Southworth-Seattle, and Kingston-Seattle routes.

              (5) The Washington state ferries will develop a plan to increase passenger-only farebox recovery to at least forty percent by July 1, 2003, through increased fares, lower operation costs, and other cost- saving measures as appropriate. The department must report to the transportation committees of the legislature by December 1, 2003 on the options, strategies, and decisions implemented to achieve farebox recovery targets.

              (6) The department must provide a separate accounting of passenger- only ferry service costs and auto ferry service costs, and must provide periodic reporting to the legislature on the financial status of both passenger-only and auto ferry service in Washington state.

              (7) The Washington state ferries will conduct an evaluation of the passenger-only ferry system. At a minimum the evaluation must address the effectiveness of existing passenger-only routes, and identify improvement opportunities. The department will include in this evaluation a review of recommendations for expanded passenger-only ferry service, including new routes and markets, previously submitted to the department by established citizen advisory groups. The department must report to the transportation committees of the legislature by December 1, 2004, on the options, strategies, and recommendations for improving the passenger-only ferry system.

              (8) The Washington state ferries will evaluate the feasibility of contracting with a public or private organization to provide passenger- only ferry service. The Washington state ferries will also compare the costs and benefits of such state-contracted service to the costs and benefits of such service if provided by an alternative public-private partnership, involving a public benefit transit agency or other entity. The department must report to the transportation committees of the legislature by December 1, 2004, on the options, strategies, and recommendations for contracted passenger-only ferry service.

              (9) The Washington state ferries must work with the department's information technology division to implement a new revenue collection system, including the integration of the regional fare coordination system (smart card). Each December, annual updates are to be provided to the transportation committees of the legislature concerning the status of implementing and completing this project, with updates concluding the first December after full project implementation.

              (10) The Washington state ferries shall evaluate the benefits and costs of selling the depreciation rights to ferries purchased by the state in the future through sale and lease-back agreements, as permitted under RCW 47.60.010. The department is authorized to issue a request for proposal to solicit proposals from potential buyers. The department must report to the transportation committees of the legislature by December 1, 2004, on the options, strategies, and recommendations for sale/lease-back agreements on existing ferry boats as well as future ferry boat purchases.

              (11) The Washington state ferries shall work with the department of general administration, office of state procurement to improve the existing fuel procurement process and solicit, identify, and evaluate, purchasing alternatives to reduce the overall cost of fuel and mitigate the impact of market fluctuations and pressure on both short- and long- term fuel costs. Consideration shall include, but not be limited to, long-term fuel contracts, partnering with other public entities, and possibilities for fuel storage in evaluating strategies and options. The department shall report back to the transportation committees of the legislature by December 1, 2003, on the options, strategies, and recommendations for managing fuel purchases and costs.

              (b) Projects that were completed in the 2001-03 biennium and do not require expenditure in the 2003-05 biennium may be removed from the list following approval by the office of financial management;

              (c) Projects may be added when the department of transportation identifies the projects associated with activity funding allocations as long as the activity allocation is reduced by the amount of the projects added following approval by the office of financial management;

              (d) If planned construction of a project is unavoidably delayed, the department may advance construction of a similar project provided that funding has been identified to complete both projects following approval by the office of financial management;

              (e) In order to maximize federal funding and ensure that the state does not lose any available federal funds, projects may be added to the list that utilize additional federal funds provided that state match is available and there are no projects where the state funds can be supplanted following approval by the office of financial management; and

              (f) In the event of an emergency, the department is allowed to add emergency projects to the list and delay currently funded projects in order to fund the emergency projects following approval by the office of financial management.

              The department will provide every calendar quarter to the house transportation committee and the senate highway and transportation committee a report detailing any changes to the project list and the reasons for the change.

              (2) The Puget Sound capital construction account--state appropriation includes $45,000,000 in proceeds from the sale of bonds authorized by RCW 47.10.843 for vessel and terminal acquisition, major and minor improvements, and long lead time materials acquisition for the Washington state ferries. The transportation commission may authorize the use of current revenues available to the motor vehicle account in lieu of bond proceeds for any part of the state appropriation.

              (3) Of the funds appropriated in this section, $5,337,000 is provided for emergency repairs, $77,272,000 is provided for terminal preservation and improvements, $84,191,000 is provided for vessel preservation, $13,283,000 is provided for passenger-only vessel and terminal preservation and improvements, and $4,676,000 is reappropriated for work not completed in the 2001-03 biennium.

              (4) The Washington state ferries must prepare a strategic plan for the placement of multimodal terminals in Washington state. This plan should, at a minimum, identify and evaluate potential sites for multimodal terminals, and identify and evaluate possible financing options for placement of these terminals. No improvement funds may be spent on new terminals until the strategic plan has been completed. The department must report to the transportation committees of the legislature by December 1, 2004, on the options, strategies, and recommendations for locating and financing multimodal terminals.

              (5) The Washington state ferries must conduct an analysis of the long-term need for the Shaw Terminal. At a minimum, this analysis should address the viability and role of the terminal, as well as the availability and suitability of alternative methods of accessing Shaw Island. No preservation funds may be spent on the Shaw Terminal until the Shaw Terminal analysis has been completed. The department must report to the transportation committees of the legislature by December 1, 2003, on the options, strategies, and recommendations for the Shaw Island terminal.

              (6) The department of transportation should work with the Washington state treasurer and others, as appropriate, to identify and evaluate alternative financing options to add new boats to the Washington state ferries system. This evaluation should be focused on providing the department future flexibility. The current financing plan assumes that two auto boats and one passenger-only boat will be financed through revenues generated through mechanisms provided in current law, with an additional 2 auto boats and one passenger-only boat financed through additional revenues. The department shall evaluate the possibilities of financing a fifth auto boat through operating savings, additional financing mechanisms, or a combination of the two approaches. In developing a plan for new boats, the department shall work with other parties interested in acquiring similar boats to determine if partnerships can be developed that would reduce the costs per boat for all parties through contracting with a shipbuilder for a larger number of boats to be delivered. The department must report to the transportation committees of the legislature by December 1, 2003, on the options, strategies, and recommendations for financing alternatives.

              (7) The department shall evaluate the existing process for designing and building new vessels. In reviewing the process, the department shall compare and contrast standard shipbuilding industry methods with current authorized design-build processes; including the industry use of owner's requirements or functional specifications as a basis for developing contract specifications and contract guidance drawings. Additional analysis of existing processes with industry practices should include a comparison of the impact of the two approaches on the overall, long-term vehicle operating, maintenance, and preservation costs. A report of the findings shall be provided to the transportation committees of the legislature by December 1, 2004.

              (8) The next new class of auto ferries shall be known as the "San Juan" class ferry.

$312,612,000


              The appropriation in this section is subject to the following conditions and limitations and specified amounts are provided solely for that activity:

              (1) The appropriation is based on the budgeted expenditure of $35,159,000 for vessel operating fuel in the 2001-2003 biennium. If the actual cost of fuel is less than this budgeted amount, the excess amount may not be expended. If the actual cost exceeds this amount, the department shall request a supplemental appropriation.

              (2) The appropriation provides for the compensation of ferry employees. The expenditures for compensation paid to ferry employees during the 2001-2003 biennium may not exceed $207,065,000 plus a dollar amount, as prescribed by the office of financial management, that is equal to any insurance benefit increase granted general government employees in excess of $432.82 a month annualized per eligible marine employee multiplied by the number of eligible marine employees for the respective fiscal year, a dollar amount as prescribed by the office of financial management for costs associated with pension amortization charges, and a dollar amount prescribed by the office of financial management for salary increases during the 2001-2003 biennium. For the purposes of this section, the expenditures for compensation paid to ferry employees shall be limited to salaries and wages and employee benefits as defined in the office of financial management's policies, regulations, and procedures named under objects of expenditure "A" and "B" (7.2.6.2).

              The prescribed salary and insurance benefit increase or decrease dollar amount that shall be allocated from the governor's compensation appropriations is in addition to the appropriation contained in this section and may be used to increase or decrease compensation costs, effective July 1, 2001, and thereafter, as established in the 2001-2003 general fund operating budget.

              (3) The department shall issue a request for information from entities interested in purchasing advertising on board Washington state ferry vessels. The department shall evaluate the proposals and report back to the legislature's transportation committees in January 2002 regarding the potential for revenue from different types of advertising.

              (4) The department may enter into contracts with private vendors to sell ferry tickets and medium at locations other than Washington state ferry terminals or facilities.

              (a) The department may enter into the contracts only (i) with private vendors that are already established businesses offering goods for sale to the general public; and (ii) if it determines that the vendor's established location has the potential to serve a significant percentage of the customers using a particular ferry route.

              (b) The department may adopt necessary rules and procedures to allow the use of credit and debit cards to purchase ferry tickets or medium from a private vendor who has contracted with the department to sell ferry tickets or medium. The department may establish a convenience fee to be paid by all persons purchasing ferry tickets and medium at locations other than Washington state ferry terminals or facilities. The convenience fee must be sufficient to offset the charges imposed on the department by the credit and debit card companies. In no event may the use of credit or debit cards authorized by this section create a loss of revenue to the state. The use of a personal credit card does not rely upon the credit of the state as prohibited by Article VIII, section 5 of the state Constitution.

              (5) The legislature recognizes the value of a regional fare collection system to promote intermodal travel throughout Washington state ferries' Puget Sound service area and therefore encourages the department to resume participation in the regional fare coordination project (smart card). The department shall develop a request for funding of the on-going operating costs associated with the regional fare coordination project and shall present this request to the 2003 legislature. The request for funding shall be sufficient to support a system that prevents the disclosure of personally identifying information of persons who use a smart card to facilitate payment of ferry fares. The requested system may facilitate the disclosure of aggregate information on fare collection to governmental agencies or groups concerned with public transportation or public safety as long as the data does not contain any personally identifying information. The requested system shall not prevent the release of personally identifying information to law enforcement agencies when required by a subpoena.

POINT OF ORDER


             Representative Kessler requested a Scope and Object ruling on amendment (358) to amendment (344).


SPEAKER'S RULING


             Mr. Speaker (Representative Lovick presiding): "Substitute House Bill No. 1163 is the state transportation budget for the 2003-05 biennium. It provides state funds for various transportation projects.

             Amendment 358 relates to the governing board of a regional transportation authority that receives no funds in the budget bill. The purpose of the amendment - to require changes in the method by which the authority's board members are chosen - is completely external to the purpose of the bill, providing state funds for various transportation projects.

             The amendment is therefore beyond the scope and object of the bill.

             Representative Kessler, your point of order is well taken."


             The question before the House was the adoption of amendment (344) as amended.


             The amendment as amended was adopted. The bill was ordered engrossed.


             There being no objection, the rules were suspended, the second reading considered the third and the bill was placed on final passage.


             Representatives Murray, Wallace, Romero and Jarrett spoke in favor of passage of the bill.


             Representatives Ericksen and Mielke spoke against the passage of the bill.


             The Speaker assumed the chair.


             The Speaker stated the question before the House to be the final passage of Engrossed Substitute House Bill No. 1163.

             The Clerk called the roll on the final passage of Engrossed Substitute House Bill No. 1163 and the bill passed the House by the following vote: Yeas - 57, Nays - 40, Absent - 0, Excused - 1.

"PART I - INTENT


              NEW SECTION. Sec. 101. The legislature finds that the state's transportation system is in critical need of repair, restoration, and enhancement. Bridges and major highway structures are at risk of failure during a seismic episode; ferry vessels are aged and nearing the end of their useful life; increased traffic congestion on state highways and local roadways threatens the state's economic vitality and quality of life; highways in some areas are experiencing high accident rates; and the mobility of persons with special needs or who live in rural areas has been greatly impaired by cuts in public transportation services, thus threatening our citizens' ability to access health care, job opportunities, and educational institutions. The revenues generated by this act are dedicated to funds, accounts, and activities that are critically necessary to improve the delivery of state transportation projects and services.


PART II - LICENSE FEES


              Sec. 201. RCW 46.16.070 and 1994 c 262 s 8 are each amended to read as follows:

              (1) In lieu of all other vehicle licensing fees, unless specifically exempt, and in addition to ((the excise tax prescribed in chapter 82.44 RCW and)) the mileage fees prescribed for buses and stages in RCW 46.16.125, there shall be paid and collected annually for each truck, motor truck, truck tractor, road tractor, tractor, bus, auto stage, or for hire vehicle with seating capacity of more than six, based upon the declared combined gross weight or declared gross weight thereof pursuant to the provisions of chapter 46.44 RCW, the following licensing fees by such gross weight:

              The following provisions apply when increasing gross or combined gross weight for a vehicle licensed under this section:

              (a) The new license fee will be one-twelfth of the fee listed above for the new gross weight, multiplied by the number of months remaining in the period for which licensing fees have been paid, including the month in which the new gross weight is effective.

              (b) Upon surrender of the current certificate of registration or cab card, the new licensing fees due shall be reduced by the amount of the licensing fees previously paid for the same period for which new fees are being charged.

              (2) The proceeds from the fees collected under subsection (1) of this section shall be distributed in accordance with RCW 46.68.035.


              Sec. 202. RCW 46.68.035 and 2000 2nd sp.s. c 4 s 8 are each amended to read as follows:

              All proceeds from combined vehicle licensing fees received by the director for vehicles licensed under RCW 46.16.070 and 46.16.085 shall be forwarded to the state treasurer to be distributed into accounts according to the following method:

              (1) The sum of two dollars for each vehicle shall be deposited into the multimodal transportation account, except that for each vehicle registered by a county auditor or agent to a county auditor pursuant to RCW 46.01.140, the sum of two dollars shall be credited to the current county expense fund.

PART III - VEHICLE TRANSFER TAX


              NEW SECTION. Sec. 301. A new section is added to chapter 82.44 RCW to read as follows:

              (1) There is levied and there shall be collected a vehicle transfer tax on motor vehicles for the privilege of using the transportation system in this state. The tax authorized by this section shall be in addition to any other taxes authorized by law and shall be imposed on any retail sale, lease, or use of a motor vehicle upon which a state tax is imposed under chapter 82.08 or 82.12 RCW. However, the tax imposed by this section does not apply to the rental of a motor vehicle. The rate of the tax shall equal forty-six one-hundredths of one percent of the selling price when a state tax is imposed under chapter 82.08 RCW, or forty-six one-hundredths of one percent of the value of the article used when a state tax is imposed under chapter 82.12 RCW. The meaning ascribed to words and phrases in chapters 82.04, 82.08, and 82.12 RCW, insofar as applicable, have full force and effect with respect to the tax imposed by this section.

              (2) For the purposes of this section, "motor vehicle" has the meaning provided in RCW 46.04.320, but does not include farm tractors or farm vehicles as defined in RCW 46.04.180 and 46.04.181, off-road and nonhighway vehicles as defined in RCW 46.09.020, and snowmobiles as defined in RCW 46.10.010.

              (3) The tax imposed in this section shall be collected and remitted in the same manner as excise taxes collected under chapters 82.08 and 82.12 RCW. The department of revenue shall collect and administer the tax imposed by this section. All administrative provisions in chapters 82.08, 82.12, and 82.32 RCW, insofar as they are applicable, apply to the tax imposed under this section. The department of revenue has the power to adopt rules as may be necessary to administer the provisions of this section. In the collection of tax imposed by this section, the department of revenue may designate the county auditors of the several counties of the state as its collecting agents. The county auditors shall collect and remit the tax imposed by this section in the same manner as the tax collected under RCW 82.12.045. No additional collection fee shall be deductible by a county auditor remitting the tax collected under this section. Any duties required by this section to be performed by the county auditor may be performed by the director of licensing but no collection fee shall be deductible by said director in remitting the tax revenue to the state treasurer.

              (4) The revenue collected under this section shall be deposited into the multimodal transportation account created under RCW 47.66.070.
