This Thursday: Capitol-ize on a United Front for Transportation!
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.
*** 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 Churches, 110 11th Avenue SE., Olympia 98501
