How to Pay for Transportation Projects? Local Lawmaker Wants to Hear What the Public Thinks

kit

Yakima Republican State Senator Curtis King wants to go on a listening tour to get public feed back on how to fund transportation projects throughout the state. There will be seven public meetings, but none are in Yakima.
King, the co-chair of the Senate Transportation Committee said he and his colleagues would like to gather as much input as possible from people in order to craft a viable transportation package that could be supported by lawmakers and taxpayers. “We think it’s important that we garner all of the input that we can get, not only the D.O.T. sources, but more importantly listening to what the public has to say to us.”

King says in order to pass a transportation package there will likely be a need for additional revenue to pay for the projects. However,before the state asks for more money the state needs to prove to voters that its already stretching every dollar it has. There will be three meetings in Eastern Washington; in Spokane, TriCities and Spokane.
