Student leaders at the University of Washington say it&rsquo;s something they&rsquo;re deeply concerned about.</p><p>Students testifying last night at a hearings in King County over a proposed $20 car tab fee argued in favor of the charge. The money would&nbsp; help keep Metro busses running at current levels. Without the fee, Metro service is expected to be cut by 17 percent.
