Amendment X: Grim Ferry Tales in Washington

Scott St. Clair of the Evergreen Freedom Foundation has been investigating Washington's taxpayer-subsidized ferry system, which drew the attention of a local TV station:

One page reads: "Ferry Tales: A tragicomedy about failure, folly, and
foolishness at Washington State Ferries."

Volunteers have been handing out the pamphlets to passengers waiting in line at ferry docks.

Scott St. Clair, who did the research that went into "Grim Ferry Tales," says the goal is pull back the curtain and give people a glimpse of how their tax dollars are being
used and misused at W.S.F.

"We wanted to take a look at some of the issues inside the ferry system," he said.

The pamphlet hammers WSF for letting unions control what hours ferries and the ferry repair shop operate.

It also goes after the ferry system for not building the boats that were promised after a gas tax hike six years ago.
