Letter: Inslee's plans laughable

February 2, 2014 

I am relatively new to the state of Washington, but imagine my surprise when I read about Gov. Jay Inslee's plans for 2014:

-- Increase the highest minimum wage more than 18 percent?

-- Increase the state's gasoline tax to pay for more transportation funding, while two mega-projects are already flailing?

-- Increase education funding for illegal immigrants?

This is a gag, right?
