Sen. Curtis King (R-14th District) represents part of Clark County and serves at the Transportation Committee Co-Chair in the Senate. He sent out a list of what amounts to demands concerning this massive waste of time, energy, effort and money today, making it clear that if these conditions are not met, the $450 million the CRC Gang are wanting to rape us for will simply not happen.
The bridge must have a height that will serve at least 98 to 99% of all traffic, current and future. The current plan by the CRC is not acceptable.
The project "...must increase the flow of traffic and commerce over a vital interstate highway."
We need to eliminate costly and inflexible light rail.
There must be "fiscally prudent transit options" over the bridge.
The bridge must be ten lanes, a bus lane each way and 2 plus HOV lanes.
While I don't support the project at all, the heads exploding among the downtown mafia/CRUDEC/Chamber of Horrors and WADOT types supporting this rip off makes me very happy about this letter.
In one letter and 2 weeks of a single legislative session, Sen. King and his allies have accomplished more than Ridgefield Barbie has in 5 years of wasted elected tenure.
