Urges Support of New Transportation Funding
(Sent to members of the Washington Legislature yesterday)Senate negotiators have just announced agreement on a vital transportation funding plan. This is a critical first step in passing legislation this session to preserve and maintain our state’s roads and bridges and improve critical economic corridors.Key elements of the plan address Opportunity Washington’s major Connect priorities: $15 billion in new funding over 16 years, primarily targeting highway preservation and maintenance and highway project completion and improvement.This proposal lays an excellent foundation for the first comprehensive transportation package in more than a decade.We thank Senators Curtis King, Steve Hobbs, Joe Fain, and Marko Liias for working together to bring this plan forward.
We urge you to support new transportation investment and adopt a plan as quickly as possible. It’s time to act on a new package that will benefit the entire state.Opportunity Washington: Priorities for Shared Prosperity made transportation funding a critical priority. Here’s why.
