In Oregon, momentum is building toward a major transportation funding package of policies and investments in the 2017 Oregon Legislature. In order to be a success for Oregonians, and successful for our future transportation needs, that package must incorporate three key goals:
- Fix-It First
- Invest in Transit
- Make our Streets Safe
Unfortunately, any transportation package likely won’t incorporate the above goals unless our local and state elected leaders hear from us that these issues are important. Next week there are two great opportunities to testify to our elected leaders about transportation issues.
Help us fill the room with Oregonians who support safe streets!
