Freight mobility is a critical need in an export driven economy like the state of Washington. Whether we are shipping airplanes, wheat, apples, oil, chemicals or manufactured goods, if products cannot be transported smoothly through and from our ports, our citizens will suffer economically. With continued improvements in efficiency and emissions along all parts of the supply chain, this is the time to be embracing infrastructure investments that ensure jobs and a strong economic future for our state and our region. This project that will provide a vital role in boosting the economy and one that should be allowed to proceed as quickly as possible, and I support it fully. Sincerely, Steve Salvatori
