Low Income Not Affected By 520 Tolls

From KINGF-5 via MSNBC:

A study by the University of Washington found that only 1% of low income families use the SR 520 bridge and therefore 99% of families are not affected by the toll.

As also noted, the only other funding options would be an increase in the gas and sales taxes, which would impact these families even more.
