Two strong pro-environment actions by Gov. Jay Inslee

     — source: Jerry Cornfield, “Inslee’s political knockdown shakes both parties,” Central Kitsap Reporter 31 May 2019, p. 4. Print.

1. Inslee “vetoed a sentence repeated in six successive sections of the transportation budget.”
“Under Inslee, laws have been passed requiring providers of public transit services to stop using gasoline-powered vehicles and switch to ones fueled by electricity or biofuel or other alternatives.”
“In the bill, lawmakers wrote that ‘Fuel type may not be a factor in the grant selection process.’” Inslee vetoed this sentence.

2. Inslee “ordered $175 million be shifted from five highway projects to removing and preplacing culverts impeding the passage of salmon to spawning rounds, and fish to the ocean.”
