Use of WSDOT stormwater payments to cities

With only minutes before the 5PM cutoff on April 15, and after several days of fits and starts, SB 5314, passed out of the House on a 93-6 vote. The bill eliminates the requirement that cites get agreement from WSDOT about the use of stormwater utility fees WSDOT pays to cities for local stormwater impacts. The functional result is that local governments will be better able to plan for and meet our stormwater responsibilities without the additional administrative burden that only exists for this one entity, WSDOT.
