Getting a quick update on Sound Transit-related business right now. There's not a lot to report at the moment, but WSDOT continues to work with them to ensure that their projects move forward as planned and scheduled.

Thanks for the add! ;-) Not sure why my membership/profile vanished.

On to the legislative update. Karen is kicking us off.

Good Morning!

Unfortunately, the Senate budget is moving forward without our request for the pilot programs. It didn't come as a complete surprise, but it's still disappointing.

Brent! Amy! LeAnn! You're all champions for joining us today. Way to win the day!

Stan: the Senate budget does include $10 million for construction traffic mitigation for the Alaskan Way Viaduct program. There are lots of TDM-related elements in that piece, which represents real progress, a significant example of the state investing in TDM as a solution to congestion. So, some good news there.

Karen: the CTR program funding remains steady, so we're at least relieved to learn that CTR will be funded at the state level. I do think, though, that it's time for the board to consider rebranding. Now may be the right time for us to take that step.

Quick board membership update from Keith: we have a few names in the hopper right now. Brent has indicated that he wants to remain, and we may shift Kristina from her current citizen spot to a city/local government spot. We may be at full capacity on the board within two months.
