Washington State Transit News!
- Hi I got this off of the "National Association of Railroad Passengers"
An interesting radio show from Seattle will be Thursday, June 8, at 10:00 am
Pacific Time, about a new anti-transit ballot initiative in the State of
Washington. The Dave Ross Show on station KIRO (710 AM; with live web feed)
will feature Tim Eyman, the chief proponent of last fall's Initiative 695,
which repealed a vehicle tax that was a primary source of revenue for the
state passenger rail program. Eyman is now pushing a new, anti-transit
Initiative 745 for this fall's ballot. Other guests will be Lloyd Flem of
the Washington Association of Railroad Passengers to discuss the need for
balanced transportation, and Aaron Ostrom of the 1000 Friends of Washington
to discuss the negative effects of the proposed initiative.
