Why You Should Vote NO on Prop 2
If adopted by voters this November, Proposition 2 or “Prop 2” would effectively ban the transportation of fossil fuels through Spokane, jeopardizing thousands of jobs, the city’s tax base, and its thriving business climate. Deemed illegal and unenforceable by the city’s own legal advisors, Prop 2 puts Spokane taxpayers on the hook for millions of dollars in subsequent lawsuits and enforcement expenses, all of which would drain precious resources that could be better spent hiring new public safety personnel, investing in community parks, and repairing aging roads and critical infrastructure. The Committee to Protect Spokane’s Economy represents a diverse cross-section of local labor, agriculture, business and trade groups who believe Spokane’s rail lines are an integral part of our local, regional, and state economy.
