Why Attend? 

We can’t afford the cost of inaction on AB-282:  the loss of 1/3 of our transit service that will cut people off from 60,000 jobs and put more people out of work. 

Without the RTA bill we will lose critical access to school, shopping, healthcare, and opportunity.  Our ability to create thousands of new jobs, attract businesses and investors, and spur economic growth is at stake.  Time is short.  Leadership is needed now by our legislators.
