For the first time in our history, Washington may fail to pass a capital construction budget. Billions of dollars of investments in clean energy, forest fire prevention, water security, school construction and so much more is at stake.
For decades, the capital construction budget has been above politics and partisanship, and this year should be no different. Tell your state senator we need to pass this critical budget before they come home.
The capital budget passed the state House of Representatives in late June with 92 votes in favor and just one against—that includes overwhelming support from both Republicans and Democrats. This consensus budget is home to major investments in transportation electrification, large scale solar projects, energy efficiency and air quality projects that will benefit the most vulnerable people in our state.
This budget is so important that is has always received bipartisan support and never held up over politics—this year shouldn’t be any different.
Urge the Senate to act. Tell you state senator we need a capital construction budget and we need it fast.
