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

              The commission may oversee up to four pilot projects implementing the use of traffic safety cameras to detect failure to stop at railroad crossings, stoplights, and school zones.

              (1) 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.

              (2) 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.

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

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

              (b) 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;

              (c) 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;

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

              (e) 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;

              (f) 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;

              (g) 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;

              (h) For purposes of the 2003-05 biennium pilot projects, infractions generated by the use of traffic safety cameras are exempt from the provisions of RCW 3.50.100 and must be processed in the same manner as parking violations; and

              (i) 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.

DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION--MARINE--PROGRAM X

              Puget Sound Ferry Operations Account--State Appropriation. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (($311,312,000))

$313,250,000


              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)) $35,797,000 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.

              (2) There is levied and there shall be collected an additional tax on each retail car rental, regardless of whether the vehicle is licensed in this state, equal to five and nine-tenths percent of the selling price. The revenue collected under this subsection shall be deposited in the multimodal transportation account created in RCW 47.66.070.

              (3) Beginning July 1, 2003, there is levied and collected an additional tax of three-tenths of one percent of the selling price on each retail sale of a motor vehicle in this state, other than retail car rentals taxed under subsection (2) of this section. The revenue collected under this subsection shall be deposited in the multimodal transportation account created in RCW 47.66.070.

              (4) For purposes of subsection (3) 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.

              (5) The taxes imposed under this chapter shall apply to successive retail sales of the same property.

              (((4))) (6) The rates provided in this section apply to taxes imposed under chapter 82.12 RCW as provided in RCW 82.12.020.


              Sec. 202. RCW 82.12.020 and 2003 c 5 (EHB 1977) s 2 are each amended to read as follows:

              (1) There is hereby levied and there shall be collected from every person in this state a tax or excise for the privilege of using within this state as a consumer: (a) Any article of tangible personal property purchased at retail, or acquired by lease, gift, repossession, or bailment, or extracted or produced or manufactured by the person so using the same, or otherwise furnished to a person engaged in any business taxable under RCW 82.04.280 (2) or (7); or (b) any canned software, regardless of the method of delivery, but excluding canned software that is either provided free of charge or is provided for temporary use in viewing information, or both.

              (2) This tax shall apply to the use of every service defined as a retail sale in RCW 82.04.050 (2)(a) or (3)(a) and the use of every article of tangible personal property, including property acquired at a casual or isolated sale, and including byproducts used by the manufacturer thereof, except as hereinafter provided, irrespective of whether the article or similar articles are manufactured or are available for purchase within this state.

              (3) The provisions of this chapter do not apply in respect to the use of any article of tangible personal property or service taxable under RCW 82.04.050(2)(a) or (3)(a) purchased at retail or acquired by lease, gift, or bailment if the sale to, or the use by, the present user or his bailor or donor has already been subjected to the tax under chapter 82.08 RCW or this chapter and the tax has been paid by the present user or by his bailor or donor.

              (4) Except as provided in this section, payment by one purchaser or user of tangible personal property or service of the tax imposed by chapter 82.08 or 82.12 RCW shall not have the effect of exempting any other purchaser or user of the same property or service from the taxes imposed by such chapters. If the sale to, or the use by, the present user or his or her bailor or donor has already been subjected to the tax under chapter 82.08 RCW or this chapter and the tax has been paid by the present user or by his or her bailor or donor; or in respect to the use of property acquired by bailment and the tax has once been paid based on reasonable rental as determined by RCW 82.12.060 measured by the value of the article at time of first use multiplied by the tax rate imposed by chapter 82.08 RCW or this chapter as of the time of first use; or in respect to the use of any article of tangible personal property acquired by bailment, if the property was acquired by a previous bailee from the same bailor for use in the same general activity and the original bailment was prior to June 9, 1961, the tax imposed by this chapter does not apply.

              (5) The tax shall be levied and collected in an amount equal to the value of the article used or value of the service used by the taxpayer multiplied by the rates in effect for the retail sales tax under RCW 82.08.020.


              Sec. 203. RCW 82.12.045 and 1996 c 149 s 19 are each amended to read as follows:

              (1) In the collection of the use tax on motor vehicles, the department of revenue may designate the county auditors of the several counties of the state as its collecting agents. Upon such designation, it shall be the duty of each county auditor to collect the tax at the time an applicant applies for the registration of, and transfer of title to, the motor vehicle, except in the following instances:

              (a) Where the applicant exhibits a dealer's report of sale showing that the retail sales tax has been collected by the dealer;

              (b) Where the application is for the renewal of registration;

              (c) Where the applicant presents a written statement signed by the department of revenue, or its duly authorized agent showing that no use tax is legally due; or

              (d) Where the applicant presents satisfactory evidence showing that the retail sales tax or the use tax has been paid by ((him)) the applicant on the vehicle in question.

              (2) The term "motor vehicle," as used in this section means and includes all motor vehicles, trailers and semitrailers used, or of a type designed primarily to be used, upon the public streets and highways, for the convenience or pleasure of the owner, or for the conveyance, for hire or otherwise, of persons or property, including fixed loads, facilities for human habitation, and vehicles carrying exempt licenses.

              (3) It shall be the duty of every applicant for registration and transfer of certificate of title who is subject to payment of tax under this section to declare upon ((his)) the application the value of the vehicle for which application is made, which shall consist of the consideration paid or contracted to be paid therefor.

              (4) Each county auditor who acts as agent of the department of revenue shall at the time of remitting license fee receipts on motor vehicles subject to the provisions of this section pay over and account to the state treasurer for all use tax revenue collected under this section, after first deducting as ((his)) a collection fee the sum of two dollars for each motor vehicle upon which the tax has been collected. All revenue received by the state treasurer under this section shall be credited to the general fund. The auditor's collection fee shall be deposited in the county current expense fund. A duplicate of the county auditor's transmittal report to the state treasurer shall be forwarded forthwith to the department of revenue.

              (5) Any applicant who has paid use tax to a county auditor under this section may apply to the department of revenue for refund thereof if he or she has reason to believe that such tax was not legally due and owing. No refund shall be allowed unless application therefor is received by the department of revenue within the statutory period for assessment of taxes, penalties, or interest prescribed by RCW 82.32.050(3). Upon receipt of an application for refund the department of revenue shall consider the same and issue its order either granting or denying it and if refund is denied the taxpayer shall have the right of appeal as provided in RCW 82.32.170, 82.32.180 and 82.32.190.

              (6) The provisions of this section shall be construed as cumulative of other methods prescribed in chapters 82.04 to 82.32 RCW, inclusive, for the collection of the tax imposed by this chapter.
