Legislation often is loathe to use proper names, so lawmakers sometimes result to elaborate descriptions instead. That’s the case with House Bill 1063, which sets up a way for a tribe to enter an agreement on fuel taxes with a county.
What tribe in which county? One that is “west of the Cascade mountain range that borders Puget Sound with a population of at least 118,000 but less than 250,000.”
Translation: The Samish tribe in Whatcom County.
