Transportation in Seattle should serve everyone. It should prioritize transit, pedestrian, and cycling, and continue to accommodate personal vehicles. It should be convenient for people to get around the city without a car, and for businesses to make deliveries. It should be powered by clean electricity.

State Priorities 2022
Needed to advance City Action Priorities
The 2021 Legislative Session has now closed, and a summary of the session is here. It is possible the Legislature will be called back in the fall for an emergency session to pass a Transportation Package, but otherwise the Legislature will reconvene in January next year. We will use this space to list ideas for legislation we hope will be introduced then.
Transportation Package – increase multi-modal spending, fix decaying infrastructure, no highway expansion
Growth Management Act Add a required Climate Element to County and Cities' Comprehensive Plans
School Bus Electrification – State reimburse local school district for electric bus cost
Broaden Local Transportation Revenue Options – add progressive revenue options and allow transportation districts to use multiple revenue sources
Implement a Per Mile Driven Charge for Electric Vehicles – replace existing flat fee car tab with one that charges per vehicle miles driven
Rebate for Electric Bicycles.– make electric bikes more affordable
The State charges EV vehicles a $150/year fee and hybrid cars $75/year on their vehicle licenses that funds a grant program for electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
The State has a sales tax exemption for vehicles powered by clean alternative fuel, and for certain plug-in hybrids.
