With the release of the March 17th revenue forecast, we now know that the revenue picture for the Operating Budget and the Capital Budget has been stabilized, and with passage of the federal American Rescue Plan Act, the State has effectively recovered in relation to those budgets.
However, the status of transportation funding is not so fortunate looking into the future. There is information reported that the state's gas consumption will not recover for over ten years. That will be a severe ongoing deficit to overcome and the needs are only continuing to grow. Transportation needs your attention today.
Please help us convey the message to Olympia that clear action needs to happen this legislative session. Do not kick the can down the road.
