Letter: Reject Initiative 2117

Your vote can make a difference for our state this year. I’m referring to Initiative 2117, which seeks to repeal Washington’s Climate Commitment Act. Please join me in voting “no” on this misguided effort. This act is essential for funding clean-energy projects and safe streets for cyclists and pedestrians in Vancouver and Clark County. It provides funds for hydrogen fuel-cell buses, which will connect Salmon Creek and Hazel Dell to the Columbia River waterfront development along Highway 99. Your children and grandchildren will thank you for ensuring that they have a livable climate for their future.
