Transportation package–please send an email

Good morning. State legislators will be meeting today to discuss a new transportation package. Please review the message below from the Ferry Community Partnership, and send an email if you can.

To: Washington Ferry Coalition

Progress continues to be made on a transportation funding package and the Senate Transportation Committee is holding a Work Session on their proposal on Thursday, November 21.   This week is a very good time to send an email into legislators while they are meeting to encourage them to pass a transportation package this year.   Here is a short email you can copy and send to the short list below or personalize a message as you like.

I urge you to take action this year to fix our state’s transportation system.

Our state’s economy depends on our highways, ferries, bridges and transit systems.  We can’t wait.  An example is the need for funding for a 3rd 144-car ferry as part of our marine highway system.  The longer we delay, the more expensive it will get.  Now is the time to pass a comprehensive transportation package for the citizens of Washington and the economic vitality of our state.

Thank you,
