Initiative 985: the Reduce Congestion Initiative

Steve Scher
09/26/2008

I–985 is the lastest from Tim Eyman. It would shift about $129 million a year from general funds that go for schools and prisons and put it into congestion relief. It would force the state to help fund traffic synchronization equipment and it would open carpool lanes to general traffic during non–peak hours. Supporters say it would solve congestion in the region without raising taxes. Detractors say it simply wouldn't work. Tim Eyman debated Aubrey Davis, former chair of the Washington State Transportation Commission, on KUOW's Weekday, September 26, 2008.
