Seattle Taxi Drivers Protest Green Cab Proposal

Posted: Updated:
SEATTLE (AP) - Some taxi drivers circled the King County
Courthouse to protest a proposal to give 50 new licenses to Green
Cab Association for hybrid gas-electric cabs.
The current drivers say the new licenses should be distributed
to existing companies by lottery.
A spokesman at Tuesday's protest, Joe Blondo, says all cab
companies are moving to more fuel-efficient cars.
But the county says the Green Cab company is best-equipped to
run the experimental hybrid taxi program.
