Executive Constantine supports House Transportation Committee proposal
King County Executive Dow Constantine tonight issued a statement in regard to the House Transportation Committee’s proposal.
“The House Transportation Committee’s proposal delivers what I and other elected leaders across the state have been calling for over the past several years: It expands transit capacity, fully authorizes expansion of light rail, provides more options for people to get to their destination, and doesn’t divert money from the general fund that is needed for schools and protecting the environment. I am also pleased there are no provisions that compromise our ability to reduce carbon pollution.
“I hope that House and Senate leaders remain focused on these priorities as they begin their final negotiations, and that they pass a state transportation package this year.”
