A proposal to allow transferability of the Discover Pass was approved by the Senate today.
“We’ve said from the beginning that this is a work in progress,” said Ranker. “After hearing from citizens statewide, it's clear that a non-transferable pass places too large a burden upon already strained family budgets.”
A November survey conducted by Washington State University under the direction of state Parks, Fish and Wildlife and Natural Resources agencies showed the lack of transferability to have negatively affected revenues. Ranker said the new rule could potentially increase the desirability and sales of the pass.
If signed into law, the legislation would take effect immediately. Current pass holders would be allowed a second vehicle as well.
