We received this message via the Ferry Community Partnership. Drew Hansen is the House Representative for the 23rd District.
“You may have read that my proviso that the Legislature intends to fully fund ferries in 2013-15 and directs WSF outreach consistent with that intent was stripped out of the final Transportation budget. We didn’t give up, though, and today the chairs of the Transportation Committees (Rep. Clibborn in the House and Sen. Haugen in the Senate) sent this joint letter to Gov. Gregoire, asking her to make the same direction to WSF. I’ll let you know what happens next with this; we’re going at it on every level we can find.
