Gas tax, gun control and paid sick leave on ‘Legislative Review’

By | February 21, 2013 | Comments

On Wednesday’s “Legislative Review,” we have details from a proposal by House Democrats to raise the gas tax by 10 cents to pay for transportation projects. We also cover a gun control bill that aims to protect the victims of domestic abuse. Under the proposal, people with a restraining order against them would be required to give up their guns while the order is in place.

Plus, we have highlights from a debate over paid sick leave. Seattle passed an ordinance last year requiring businesses with more than five employees to provide paid sick leave. Some state lawmakers want to expand that law statewide — while others want to limit it, or repeal it altogether.
