A statewide coalition of service stations has filed a lawsuit against Gov. Chris Gregoire, the Department of Licensing and the state to challenge fuel tax reimbursement agreements with regional American Indian tribes. The non-profit Automotive United Trades Organization, based in McCleary, filed a lawsuit in Grays Harbor Superior Court earlier this month seeking a court order to halt tax reimbursements to tribal service stations based on an agreement Gregoire signed in 2007.
