Thanks to all of your signatures, I (David Hablewitz) have been asked to participate in a panel working session with the House Transportation Committee on HB2312, an identical bill to that in the Senate. This session is open to the public to observe. But unlike a public hearing, this working session does not provide an opportunity for public comment.
First a panel of WSDOT staff and Mark Hallenbeck from TRAC at the UW will give their presentations. Following that will be a panel of 3 that will provide different perspectives on the ETL implementation and prior development; these panelists include:
Claudia Balducci, King County councilmember (and former mayor of Bellevue, during the I-405/SR 167 corridor planning development)
Justin Leighton, the executive director at the WA State Transit Association
David Hablewitz, systems analyst/architect and spokesperson for stop405tolls.org and representing the 29,000+ people so far that have signed the petition calling for an end to the toll.
The meeting is scheduled for a total of 2 hours. The first hour will be the panel presentations and Q&A. Each panelist will give a 5 minute presentation followed by 30 minutes of questions by the committee members.
Date: Thursday, January 28
Time: 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM
Location: Hearing Room B in the John L. O’Brien building on the capital campus
