Fund education first
With the discussion of options and heightened tension of a decision about which Highway 99 viaduct option to fund, decision makers and our lawmakers need to step back and reconsider their priorities.
Any viaduct funding should be answered with a lawsuit, charging our Legislature with misappropriating funds. With K-12 education “the paramount duty” of the state, funding replacement of a repairable structure has to be secondary to fully funding K-12 education in the next budget.
