A comprehensive transportation package this session would promote economic recovery and create jobs across the state and region at a critical time. The pandemic’s impact on our economy, jobs, and mobility leaves us with either enormous challenge or extraordinary opportunity. We should seize the opportunity to fully fund our state’s transportation system focusing while focusing on equity, maintaining a state of good repair, and increasing green investments in electrification infrastructure.
We have an opportunity to build and invest in an equitable and inclusive recovery and economic future for Washington. The transportation and transit infrastructure in your community should not determine the economic opportunity available to you.
We urge Legislative leaders to come together and work toward agreement on a comprehensive transportation funding package during this Legislative session. A state transportation package could create an equitable, accessible, affordable, and resilient transit system that would address infrastructure needs, create jobs, and set us up for future success as a competitive place to locate business. Now is the time to invest and build a competitive, resilient, and equitable economy in our state.
