Bipartisan Senate transportation proposal released

A bipartisan Senate foursome released a transportation revenue proposal on the afternoon of Thursday, February 12. Senator Curtis King (R-Yakima), Steve Hobbs (D-Lake Stevens), Joe Fain (R-Auburn), and Marko Liias (D-Lynnwood) presented the proposal and took questions at a press conference. AWC is encouraged by this important first step and supportive of this proposal and the work of the bipartisan group of senators. The revenue proposal is accompanied by a series of reform proposals. The senators indicated during the press conference that they had agreement on most, but not all of the reforms.

A hearing on the reform proposals is scheduled in the Senate Transportation Committee on Tuesday, February 17 and a hearing on the revenue proposal on Wednesday, February 18. AWC Board members will be testifying at both hearings. These hearings coincide with City Action Days so many city officials will also choose to testify. While we want a strong public showing of support, it is even more important that you talk to your senators and encourage to keep this bill moving. This is a big vote for senators so they need your support.
