Senate Transportation leaders to hold statewide forums

Senate Transportation Committee Co-Chairs, Senator Tracey Eide (D-Federal Way) and Senator Curtis King (R-Yakima), released dates for a series of transportation forums on Wednesday, August 28. See the release here. The forums will include presentations from regional transportation officials and opportunities for the public to comment.

Local elected officials are encouraged to participate to tell the story of the transportation needs in their communities. AWC staff will be developing resources and materials that will be available to cities planning to participate. Legislators, business, labor, transit advocates, local governments, and others worked hard to pass a transportation revenue package during session, but that effort ultimately failed. See the Final Bulletin with a recap of what happened on transportation revenue during the 2013 legislative session.

These forums provide an opportunity to continue the work on transportation revenue and gear up for future legislative action.

The following transportation forums will occur in the evening, from 6 pm to 9 pm.
