 Transportation Action

TRANSPORTATION ADVOCACY DAY: Sign in, show up and support more
transportation choices!

Join Transportation Choices Coalition and other progressive transportation
and environmental organizations such as the Cascade Bicycle Club, Bicycle
Alliance of Washington, Sierra Club, Futurewise, Feet First, WashPIRG, All
Aboard Washington, Uptown Alliance, and Washington Coalition for Promoting
Physical Activity as we head to Olympia to fight for more transportation
choices. With a short session and the state's budget crisis worsening,
expect the 2010 legislative session to be fast-paced and focused on filling
the $2.6 billion and growing hole in the state's operating budget. We'll be
lobbying our elected officials to save transit service in communities around
the state; for healthy and safe walkable and bikeable communities; and for
incentives that encourage driving less. 

Update: Our top 3 legislative priorities -- "Transit Funding to Keep
Washington Moving" (HB 2855), "Complete Our Streets" (HB 2911) and
"Increased Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety" (HB 3001) -- will have a public
hearing during Transportation Advocacy Day.   

WHEN: Thursday, January 28, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
WHERE: United
wY1reKGELlb> Churches, 110 11th Avenue SE., Olympia 98501 


We'll give you the training and tips, set up your meetings with Legislators
and even organize a carpool to get you there!  Get your special
Transportation Advocacy Day Undriver's License too!
