Correction to a fact used in our Ballot Issues overview.

On October 22, 2014, the Seattle Times published an opinion piece by the Municipal League regarding Seattle Proposition 1.  This piece stated that King County Metro’s costs have increased roughly twice as fast as inflation in recent years.  This statement requires correction.  Between 2008 and 2013, Metro’s inflation adjusted cost per bus service hour increased by a total of 2.5%.  While Metro’s costs increased somewhat faster than the rate of inflation during this time, they did not increase twice as fast as the rate of inflation.  The Municipal League regrets the error.
