(The Center Square) – Washington-state-based Citizen Action Defense Fund says a bill passed by the state Legislature last year as part of an ambitious transportation package violates the single subject provision of the state constitution. CADF is threatening to take legal action if the state Attorney General’s Office doesn’t move to invalidate the legislation.

The legislation in question is Engrossed Substitute Senate Bill 5974, one of four bills that make up the 16-year, nearly $17 billion “Move Ahead Washington” transportation package meant to address a maintenance backlog on highways and bridges, complete various projects already underway, and upgrade the state’s ferry fleet.
