This week we’re asking: What’s the best way to grow?
Duvall, Carnation, North Bend, Snoqualmie and Covington all want to grow. The Puget Sound Regional Council, which oversees the growth and development of the region, says not too big and not too fast. Who gets to decide how rapidly a city grows?
Sound Transit has been spending millions on marketing for their ST3 proposal. Is it spending too much or just the right amount?
Democrats in the House of Representatives held a historic “sit-in” in Congress this week. They want the House to hold a vote on gun legislation that would ban people on the No Fly List from purchasing guns. How effective was their protest?
We'll tackle these subjects and more!
