Re: “We aren’t doing enough to protect, restore state’s salmon runs” (Viewpoint, 1-15).

David Troutt writes that “Now is the time to explore creative options and start doing what we need to do to restore our salmon and heal Puget Sound.”

Unfortunately, his opinion on how to do this is by coming up with new and inventive taxes. This solution has been tried time and again with very few results for the salmon but good results for those who wish to manage these new-found funds.
