  • NO on I-976

     Initiative 976 is Tim Eyman's latest attempt to cut billions of dollars in funding from badly-needed transportation projects across the state. I-976 would derail our ability to fix dangerous roads, retrofit outdated bridges and overpasses, complete voter-approved light rail, provide transit for riders with disabilities, and more. More than $12 billion would be slashed from state and local projects with no plan for replacing any of the funding.

    We recommend a NO vote on Initiative 976.

    Every city and county in Washington depends on transportation infrastructure that would be impacted by the cuts from I-976. This would be a huge step backwards for our state. We need to keep moving forward.

    In Spokane County, we could lose funding for:

    • The 10.5 mile North/South Freeway Project, which is expected to carry 150,000 vehicles a day and create Prevailing Wage construction jobs.
    • Dial-a-ride, paratransit, and fixed-route services for seniors, veterans, and people with disabilities.
    • Spokane Transit’s Monroe-Regal line, a high performance bus route that will provide frequent, reliable, all-day service alone this regional corridor.
    • Spokane Transit vanpool improvements, such as new vehicles and service expansions.
    • Spokane Tribe of Indians’ Moccasin Express fixed-route service and vehicle replacement.

    AND $2.5 million loss per year to Spokane Transportation Benefit District funding.
