UpZones #32: Hugh Spitzer | Cascadia Underground
University of Washington Law School professor Hugh Spitzer stopped by the bookstore for a free-flowing discussion on how Washington State's founding history played into the national populist, and then progressive, movements popular in the state's earliest years, and how state constitutions don't only reflect political culture, they create it, too. After a brief history on the follies of Seattle transit, Professor Spitzer sets Ian straight on the distinction between a "home-rule" and a "Dillon-Rule" state, although Ian remains unconvinced that Seattle has sufficient leeway to tax itself.
