2019 Campaigns

Permanent Defense is currently working to defeat Tim Eyman’s I-976 (an initiative to the Legislature for 2019).

Tim Eyman’s I-976

I-976 is the latest initiative from Grover Norquist clone Tim Eyman. I-947 would eviscerate funding for Sound Transit 3, which was approved by voters in 2016, as well as WSDOT’s share of Amtrak Cascades. Local governments would lose the authority to levy vehicle fees to fund transit service, as cities like Seattle currently do.

I-976 is an all-out attack on transit funding in Washington State.

I-976 qualified as an initiative to the Washington State Legislature for 2019 on January 15th, 2019. It is destined to appear on the November 2019 ballot since there is no chance of the House and Senate adopting it.

Please visit the NO on I-976 website to learn more about I-976’s destructive impacts and join the effort to defeat it.
