Local lawmakers propose allowing ads on school buses

A couple of local lawmakers are behind bills in the Washington State House and Senate that would allow advertising on school buses.

State Sen. Paull Shin, D-Edmonds, has introduced a bill in the State Senate (SB 6466) that would allow advertising on school buses, with all revenue returned to the participating school district’s general fund.

State Rep. Marko Liias, D-Mukilteo, has introduced a companion bill in the House, HB 3133.

Details of the bill can be found here.

Edmonds residents who want to learn more about this bill, and participate in a discussion about the current legislative session, are invited to a 21st District town hall meeting Saturday, Feb. 20. The meeting will run from 10-11:30 a.m. at Edmonds-Woodway High School’s theater, 7600 212th St. S.W., Edmonds.

Participants will include Shin, Liias and Rep. Mary Helen Roberts (D-Edmonds). The legislators will provide an update on the state’s budget situation, and encourage residents to come with questions or ideas about other issues of interest.
