Commuters step off a Link light rail train at the Commerce Station in Tacoma, Washington, Tuesday April 12, 2016. With Sound Transit 3, voters in King and Snohomish counties approved about $54 billion over the next 25 years to expand light rail, commuter train and express-bus services across the Puget Sound region. Some state lawmakers are now trying to ease the burden of the taxes included in the transit package, which voters in Pierce County rejected. David Montesino dmontesino@thenewstribune.com
