Transportation revenue package is still alive, contact legislators now

While passage is still not assured, the transportation revenue package is still alive.  Be sure to let your legislators know of your support.  In addition to contacting them about individual projects, other aspects of the package include a direct distribution of the gas tax to cities and local transportation revenue options.  It is important to note that the House and Senate have proposed different local options.  Representative Clibborn's proposal contains an increase in the Transportation Benefit District vehicle fee authority (raises the limit on fee approved through council action from $20 to $40) and the Senate proposal did not.  If this authority is important to your city, please contact your legislators.   More information on the transportation revenue package is available here.
