TRANSIT TALKS - What's in store for the 2015 Legislative session?
January 9, 2015 12:00 AMParsons Brinckerhoff OfficesCommunity Events / Public Meetings
Lets talk about that!
Friday Forums have undergone an extreme makeover. They're bigger and better than ever! Join Transportation Choices for the very first in our series of quarterly lunchtime discussions called Transit Talks. These talks will dig into tough transportation issues that we face across the state and region.
The first topic? What's in store for the 2015 Legislative session.
Will the Legislature finally pass a state transportation package?
Will we even want that package if they do?
Will we see an authority to build Sound Transit 3 pass both houses?
Will the legislature adopt carbon pricing and if so will revenues invest in more transportation choices?
Hear from WSDOT leadership, State Legislators, and local officials as we attempt to de-mystify the 2015 legislative session.
