Proposal: Move Ferries to Regional System

From KOMO-TV:

With the state facing a major budget crisis, Governor Gregoire has proposed moving the Washington State Ferry system from state to local control.

In some ways this makes sense; the ferries do cover a small region of the state. However, the ferries have always been considered a part of the state highway system and therefore are just as important as state highways in small rural areas, both on the East and West side of the mountains.

Perhaps a hybrid solution is called for?
