If you want your voice heard by our legislature, then this Thursday please go down to Olympia and give public testimony in front of the Senate Transportation Committee.
Sightline yesterday did a great write-up on how the bill’s priorities are almost completely opposite of what the public wants. Getting funding priorities in line with the actual people’s priorities would be a good start. Some other possible comments you could bring up: Direct funding for transit. Local funding being councilmanic instead of requiring a public vote. Increased funding authority for Sound Transit.
