PORT TOWNSEND, Wash. (AP) -- Washington State Ferries Director David Moseley says the system lacks funds to continue operating at current levels after 2013.

He told the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce meeting Monday the system is not sustainable.

The Peninsula Daily News reports (http://is.gd/TJrpei ) Moseley predicted a task force will recommend a tax increase that could go before voters as early as next November.
