(Everett) Herald Editorial on Taping Bill

They just keep coming. This editorial from the (Everett) Herald takes a local legislator to task for voting in committee against the taping bill:

"Rep. Marko Liias, who replaced Sullivan in the Legislature this year and sits on the committee considering HB 3292, opposes it. We urge him to reconsider and give the bill a chance to advance.

"Elected officials who follow the law have nothing to fear from this measure, and will be protected by it they're ever accused of a violation. This bill is about openness and accountability -- just what citizens expect of their government."
