APRIL FRIDAY FORUM:Transit Funding in a Divided Congress & What it Means to
You


A few weeks ago we sent out
<http://org2.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=lAtsqHdKdxRREhku7Sln%
2Bmcb8mJPXQy0>
<http://org2.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=bWxaC0Au8qAZdjVErTAhm
mcb8mJPXQy0> an action alert to asking you to help us save King County
Metro's Rapid Ride from drastic funding cuts proposed by the House
Republicans in Congress. 


Next week we will be bringing you an all star panel to give you all of the
information you need on what is going on with transit and transportation
funding in Congress.  Will the House Republicans, Senate Democrats, and the
President be able to agree on a compromise transportation funding bill? Will
the House majoirty follow through on their plan to slash New Starts funding
and defund Rapid Ride and other important regional projects? With gas prices
and demand for transit climbing, how will Congress respond?

Looking into the crystal ball isn't easy, but with these rock star
panelists, we'll give it our best shot.  As always feel free to bring your
lunch and there will be plenty of time for Q and A! 

Speakers:

Sheila Babb, Deputy State Director for U.S. Senator Patty Murray 
Larry Ehl, Federal Relation Manager, WSDOT
Ron Posthuma, Deputy Director, King County DOT

WHAT: Federal Transportation Funding Update & Its Impact on YOU
WHEN: Friday APRIL 1st, 12:00 -1:30 pm
WHERE: Seattle-King County Public Health - Chinook Building, Room 121, 401
