Share Your Thoughts on Transportation Funding & Investment Priorities
Posted on December 11th, 2012 by Laura Fonda
To better understand what residents want and how to prioritize the needs of the public against available funds, the Washington State Transportation Commission has launched a statewide survey seeking your opinion. You can sign up to take the survey online, and help guide future investments in our transportation system.
Typical questions include how much (if any) you feel is fair to pay per month in increases for transportation taxes and fees, transportation categories you think the state should invest in (e.g. new lanes, increasing bridge capacity, increasing transit service, bike and sidewalk improvements), and how investment increases should be funded (e.g. gas tax, vehicle excise tax, vehicle license fees, hybrid vehicle fees).
Once you’ve signed up for the survey via joining Voice of Washington State (VOWS), you’ll receive an email invitation for the survey. The final results will be reported to the governor and Legislature at the start of the 2013 session, and will help guide key decisions. The survey runs through Monday, December 17th, so act now!
