Please help ensure passage of transportation package

AWC and individual cities have been pushing for nearly three years for the Legislature to pass a comprehensive statewide transportation package. City officials have testified in countless public hearings, kept in frequent contact with their legislators, visited Olympia to meet with transportation leaders, authored op-eds, organized and been engaged in local and statewide coalitions, passed resolutions, and taken every opportunity to be public and vocal about their support for a transportation package.

We’ve never been closer to seeing the package become a reality. Transportation leaders have been meeting regularly over the past several weeks to come to agreement. By all accounts, these talks have been positive and they are making progress on many difficult issues. As momentum picks up on the operating budget discussions, we want to make sure that a transportation package does not get forgotten.

This is a good time to contact your legislators and make a final push about the importance of a statewide package to your city. And see this week’s video on how social media is being used to promote transportation investment.
