I-976 would significantly harm our state

People should really think hard about Imitative 976, another one of Tim Eyman’s creations, before they vote.

Sure, it will help many people save on their car tabs, which is good, but think about all the problems it would create? Funding for state and local transportation would be cut by $4.2 billion per year. Many jobs would be lost.

Agencies would see cuts, money that funds some Washington State Patrol activities, state ferry maintenance, highway construction, highway roads and bridges, bike and pedestrian projects. It would threaten other projects such as building sidewalks and repaving streets.

Think of the consequences if this passes.
