A Path to Funding Light Rail in Seattle

Ben Broesamle spoke at our February meeting about House Bill 1304, which is a bill before the State Legislature that would extend the legal provisions made for monorail to light rail, to help close funding gaps for Sound Transit and provide a path to expand light rail beyond the Sound Transit 3 package. The Urbanist had a great article on this, Hackney Bill Offers Seattle a Path to Fund Rail Priorities.

UPDATE: the bill passed the House Committee on Local Government, and has been referred to the Rules Committee!
