Section 301 of <br />2ESSB 5987 provides that a city, in which a transportation benefit district has <br />been established pursuant to RCW 36.73 and with boundaries coterminous <br />with the boundaries of the City, may by ordinance or resolution assume the <br />rights, powers, functions and obligations of the transportation benefit district. <br /> <br />Assumption of the TBD by the City Council would abolish the Board of the <br />TBD providing for more efficient governance of the TBD by the Tumwater City <br />Council. The rules, regulations and pending business of the TBD would be <br />continued by the Council. <br /> <br />SR 2015-042ccph <br /> <br /> <br />
