Biz groups turn thumbs down on I-1125

OLYMPIA -- Washington business groups, including Greater Spokane Inc., are taking turns dissing Initiative 1125, a proposal that would put restrictions on the way state sets and spends tolls on roads and bridges.

The Association of Washington Business recommended a vote against I-1125 last week at its annual "policy summit."

GSI, the Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, Greater Seattle Chamber, Renton Chamber, Washington Roundtable and state Realtors Association also urged a "no" vote, using words like irresponsible, dangerous and -- horror of horrors! -- politicizing.
