Insee Wants Legislators to Pass a Transportation Package

To the Editor:

We have unfinished business on transportation. While we did some good things last legislative session, I was disappointed that the legislature finished without passing a much-needed transportation package.

Our transportation infrastructure is the lifeblood of our economy, and we cannot afford to neglect it any longer. As I saw firsthand when the Skagit River Bridge collapsed, when even one part of our transportation system is impaired there’s an exponential effect on the surrounding community and economy.

That’s why I’m calling on legislators to pass a transportation package as soon as possible.

Please attend an upcoming transportation forum in your area, hosted by Sen. Curtis King (R-Yakima) and Sen. Tracey Eide (D-Federal Way), and make your voice heard.

If the legislature does not act this year, businesses will be unable to move goods efficiently, congestion will increase, and public transit will face serious cuts.

You, and over six million other people, rely on the roads and bridges throughout Washington, and we cannot afford to let you down. Make your voice heard, either in person or online, and tell lawmakers why you hope they pass a comprehensive transportation package.

I’ve been listening to Washingtonians voice their concerns on this issue since I took office, and I know you want working roads and bridges. I do too. Now, make sure the legislature knows as well.

Very truly yours,

Jay Inslee,
