To the Honorable President and Members,
The Senate of the State of Washington
Ladies and Gentlemen:
I am returning herewith, without my approval as to section 1, Senate Bill No. 6036 entitled:
"AN ACT Relating to local motor vehicle excise taxes;"
Senate Bill No. 6036 repeals certain motor vehicle excise tax statutes that were not expressly repealed in earlier legislation. Section 1 of the bill is an uncodified statement of intent. However, section 1 contains a drafting error that puts it in conflict with the operative portions of the bill. Consequently, the chairs of the Senate and House transportation committees have requested that section 1 be vetoed.
For these reasons, I have vetoed section 1 of Senate Bill No. 6036.
With the exception of section 1, Senate Bill No. 6036 is approved.
