Friday news roundup

I’m thinking we should change the name of Friday to “op-ed day.”

The Seattle Times looks at the challenges congestion pricing would face in Seattle.

The Stranger has an op-ed from Council member Teresa Mosqueda arguing to change to tax code, while the Seattle Times covers a report that Seattle’s tax burden is the most regressive in the state (and Washington’s is the most regressive in the nation).

JD Supra covers the recent ruling striking down the city’s “First in Time” tenant protection ordinance.

Puget Sound Business Journal has an op-ed discussing the city’s recent string of legal losses on its signature ordinances.

SeattleMet reports on the dramatic rise in homeless students in South Seattle.

Crosscut has an op-ed arguing in favor of controversial bike improvements to 35th Ave NE.
