Transportation legislation: Hearing tomorrow afternoon (April 19)

The following message comes from the Ferry Community Partnership. If you have time this evening or tomorrow morning, please send an email to the legislators in support of the following bills: HB 1954, HB 1955, and HB 1956.

Rep. Clibborn’s Transportaion Package will be heard in
Committee on Friday at 1:30. This is her previous package, but
stripped down to the 10 cent/gallon gas tax. Brad Jurkovich tells me
that 3rd Olympic Class boat is in the package and we should lobby
toward passage out of committee.

The 3rd Olympic Boat is vital to replace the 60 year old Evergreen
State class, If it does not go through, the state will lose out on
economies of scale as the Vigor will not have a continuous production
line after the 2nd Olympic Boat is built. If not this year, it may be
4 or more years before it can get back in.

Please e-mail the members of the House Transportation Committee by noon Friday to
support the Package. They will be in three bills:

> 1.HB 1954 – Concerning transportation revenue.
> 2.HB 1955 – Concerning additive transportation funding.
> 3.HB 1956 – Authorizing bonds for transportation funding

The Members and their e-mails are:

> Clibborn, Judy (D) Chair,
> Fey, Jake (D) Vice Chair,
