Transportation is a high priority as King County prepares to ask state and federal leaders for assistance to upgrade roads and other infrastructure.

King County Council members adopted legislative agendas for the state and federal governments Dec. 10.

The county is asking the state to create financing tools to allow local leaders to create revenue for the aging road system in rural and unincorporated areas.

The council is also advocating for state government to preserve the social safety net and create financing tools for the county to pay for human services programs.

The county is also prepared to ask the state’s congressional delegation for dollars to support and upgrade local transportation infrastructure.

Officials seek federal assistance to preserve existing health programs. The county is also supporting a farm bill with resources to fund federal nutritional programs.
