 Transportation Action


Last week thanks to your emails and phone calls, the House of Representative
passed an amendment to
gs8um0mGW7MBait> SB 6774 that will provide Community Transit and Pierce
Transit with a temporary funding source to stave off immediate cuts in
service due to budget shortfalls. 

Now it's the Senate's turn to agree to these amendments.  At 2:00 pm TODAY
they will decide whether to support SB 6774 as passed by the House or not.

This is our last chance to Save Bus Service...please call the Legislative
Hotline (1-800-562-6000) or
20mGW7MBait> click here to urge your Senator to support SB 6774 as passed by
the House. 

SB 6774 as passed by the House gives temporary authority to Pierce Transit
and Community Transit to form a transportation benefit district to collect a
vehicle license fee to offset impending service cuts. This authority expires
on June 30, 2015.

State contributions to transit account for less than 1 percent of overall
transportation spending. Most money for transit service comes from local
sources -- sales tax revenues that have dropped precipitously. It's going to
get worse for transit riders in Washington State if you don't act now. Save
Bus Service in Pierce and Snohomish County by urging your Senator to support
SB 6774 as passed by the House.

nXW0mGW7MBait> URGE YOUR SENATOR to support SB 6774 as passed by the House.
Act NOW and Help Save Bus Service.
