Dear reader: All Washingtonians are better off when we invest in safe and convenient bicycle infrastructure.

responsibility to hold them accountable for their decisions.

Bicycling improves local economies, provides people with an affordable way to get where they need to go, and creates more jobs per dollar spent than any other type of transportation investment. It builds stronger communities, decreases congestion and fosters improved public health (while cutting health care exenditures for households, businesses and government). It reduces our oil dependence and provides us with a fun, liberating and empowering way to get around. Investments in bicycle infrastructure provide all of these benefits while costing a fraction of what it takes to widen streets or build new highways.

This scorecard tells the story of how well our state legislators advanced Cascade Bicycle Club’s mission of creating a better community through bicycling during the 2012 legislative sessions. It provides a quantitative account of how every legislator voted on issues that support making it easier and safer to ride, while providing a qualitative look at the real story behind the scenes.

Even if you never ride a bicycle in your entire life, you benefit when we invest in bicycle infrastructure. That’s why Cascade Bicycle Club works hard to make it easier and safer for everyone to bicycle, whether you’re riding to work, school, the store, Vancouver, Portland, or just for the fun of it.

Thank you for joining us for the ride,

Chuck Ayers Executive Director, Cascade Bicycle Club

Daniel Weise President, Board of Directors, Cascade Bicycle Club

Introduction

If we want a future where everyone has the freedom to safely ride their bicycle, we need to hold our lawmakers accountable for building this future. In particular, the decisions state legislators make in Olympia help determine if it’s convenient and safe for us to ride and it’s our

But this scorecard is about more than looking back to see how we did – it’s about looking forward to the next biennium to determine how we can work together in the legislature to create a better community through bicycling

Cascade Bicycle Club’s 2012 Legislative Priorities Cascade Bicycle Club envisions a community that bicycles – inclusive, diverse and accepting, where people of all ages and backgrounds bicycle to work, to get around, for fun and for health. We work to make bicycling convenient and safe, to create world-class bicycle infrastructure and to ensure that bicycling is recognized and appreciated as an important contributor to a healthy and fun life that brings people and neighborhoods together in a prosperous and livable community. To help achieve this vision, Cascade Bicycle Club’s 2012 legislative agenda aimed to create a better community through bicycling by making neighborhood streets safer, improving public health, cutting costly red tape, saving our cities money, and increasing funding for bicycle infrastructure and transit service. Our 2012 legislative priorities included: SHB 1217 – Authorizing local authorities to establish maximum speed limits on certain non-arterial highways (a.k.a “Neighborhood Safe Speeds bill”)

SHB 1217, the Neighborhood Safe Speeds bill, would have made safer streets and neighborhoods by empowering cities and towns with the freedom to set speed limits to 20 miles per hour on nonarterial streets without a costly engineering and traffic study. Passed the House. An amended version passed the Senate Transportation committee. Did not come up for a vote in the Senate. SHB 1700 – Modifying the requirements related to designing various transportation projects (a.k.a “Safe and Flexible Design Guidelines”)

SHB 1700 will provide cities and counties the flexibility to use updated guidelines for designing bicycle and pedestrian projects, increasing safety and reducing project costs.

legislative priorities

Passed the House and Senate and was signed into law by the Governor.

ESHB 2190 – Making 2011-2013 supplemental transportation appropriations

The supplemental transportation budget provided significant new funding for both Washington’s Safe Routes to School and the Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety program, serving to increase the amount of state-funded bicycle infrastructure that will get built over the coming years. Passed the House and Senate and was signed into law by the Governor. HB 2370 – Including health in the state transportation system policy goals

HB 2370 would have added health to Washington’s six transportation goals to integrate health implications when designing, building, and maintaining our transportation system. This has the potential to save lives, improve health and safety, and reduce billions of dollars in preventable


health care costs by shifting our investments toward more active ways of getting around, like bicycling, walking and transit. Passed the House. Did not come up for a vote in the Senate Transportation committee. EHB 2660 – Addressing transportation revenue

EHB 2660 increased a number of transportation-related fees to generate revenue for transportation improvements, including for bicycle and pedestrian safety projects. It also established the Public Transportation Grant Program Account to provide funding to transit authorities in the state for operations. Passed the House and Senate and was signed into law by the Governor. HB 2751 – Concerning local transportation revenue

HB 2751 would have provided select counties and transit agencies with a new, stable, voterapproved, progressive funding source that would have helped prevent transit agencies from making significant additional cuts in service. Unless transit agencies secure new revenue, people will lose the freedom to use their bikes to get where they need to go on transit and hundreds of thousands of people will lose their ability to get to work, school, the doctor, church and the store. Passed out of the House Transportation committee, but the House did not bring it up for a vote as ESSB 6582 became the primary vehicle for addressing local transportation revenue. ESSB 6455 – Addressing transportation revenue

ESSB 6455 increased a number of transportation-related fees to generate revenue for transportation improvements, including for bicycle and pedestrian safety projects. Passed the Senate and was amended in the House. The Senate refused to concur with the House amendments. The House passed the bill agreed to in Conference, but the Senate did not bring it up for a vote as EHB 2660 (which passed the House and Senate and was signed into law by the Governor) became the primary vehicle for addressing transportation revenue. ESSB 6582 – Concerning local transportation revenue options

Passed the Senate and was amended in the House. The Senate refused to concur with the House amendments. The House and Senate Conferees signed off on a bill, but it did not come up for a vote in either chamber. SB 6074 – Concerning the capital budget

The capital budget included significant funding for a new Main Street Improvement grant program that will help cities and towns across Washington fund bicycle and pedestrian projects to help revitalize their downtown business districts. Passed the Senate and House and was signed into law by the Governor.

WASHINGTON STATE LEGISLATURE THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

House Legislator of the Year Andy Billig (3rd – Spokane) Score 100% In his first term in the legislature, Rep. Billig established himself as a smart, devoted and effective advocate for bicycling. As the vice chair of the Transportation committee, Rep. Billig displayed tremendous leadership in securing additional funding for Washington’s Safe Routes to School program and demonstrating how bicycling is a creative solution to lowering health care costs by prime sponsoring HB 2370, including health in the state transportation system policy goals. We look forward to working with Rep. Billig for many years to come as he continues his leadership in creating a better community through bicycling. 4


House Champions

These Representatives demonstrated exceptional leadership in their work to create a better community through bicycling.

Judy Clibborn (41st – Bellevue, Mercer Island, Newcastle) Score 100% As chair of the Transportation committee, Rep. Clibborn displayed tactful leadership in providing a clear path for pro-bicycling legislation and funding in the supplemental transportation budget. Rep. Clibborn is an effective committee chair who deftly balances the needs and interests of her committee members from both sides of the aisle in a transparent and friendly manner. We are honored to recognize Rep. Clibborn as a champion and commend her leadership in building a better transportation future for Washington.

Hans Dunshee (44th – Lake Stevens, Mill Creek, Snohomish) Score 100% Rep. Dunshee is a passionate and powerful advocate for creating jobs by funding safe and convenient bicycle infrastructure. As chair of the Capital Budget committee, Rep. Dunshee included funding for a new grant program in the capital budget which will help cities and towns across Washington fund bicycle and pedestrian projects to help revitalize their downtown business districts. In addition, Rep. Dunshee made a floor speech in support of HB 2370, including health in the state transportation system policy goals, mentioning how bicycling has been an important part of his recovery from back surgery.

Joe Fitzgibbon (34th – Burien, West Seattle, Vashon Island) Score 100% Rep. Fitzgibbon is a tireless and outspoken advocate for the issues important to Cascade Bicycle Club. He prime sponsored and helped pass SHB 1700, which provides cities and counties the flexibility to use updated guidelines for designing bicycle and pedestrian projects, increasing safety and reducing project costs. Rep. Fitzgibbon has encyclopedic knowledge of state transportation and land use policy and effectively uses this knowledge to help build a better community through bicycling.

Marko Liias (21st – Edmonds, Mukilteo, Lynwood) Score 100%

Cindy Ryu (32nd – Edmonds, Shoreline, Woodway) Score 100% Rep. Ryu prime sponsored and worked to pass SHB 1217, the “Neighborhood Safe Speeds bill”, for the past two years. This year, despite passing out the House 96-0, passing out the Senate Transportation Committee, and having broad, state-wide support, SHB 1217 did not come up for a vote in the Senate prior to cutoff. Rep. Ryu has vowed to bring it back and keep trying until it gets passed. She proved an eloquent and articulate spokesperson and we applaud her tenacity in fighting for safer neighborhood streets.

HOUSE CHAMPIONS

As vice chair of the House Transportation committee, Rep. Liias has proven himself a reliable, accessible, and creative leader on making it easier and safer for people to bicycle. Rep. Liias provided especially strong leadership in working to secure local transportation funding options and ensuring people have the freedom to use their bikes to get where they need to go on transit.

5


House Honorable Mentions

These Representatives demonstrated their commitment to creating a better community through bicycling in an especially critical or unique way on a specific bill or a number of issues.

Sherry Appleton (23rd – Kitsap County) Score 100% Rep. Appleton has been a steadfast supporter of the issues important to Cascade Bicycle Club. She is an articulate spokesperson against policies that waste valuable taxpayer dollars and fail to solve the problems they’re intended to remedy, like licensing bicycles.

Frank Chopp (43rd – Seattle) Score 100% Speaker Chopp paved the way for SHB 1217, SHB 1700 and HB 2370 to pass out of the House while providing a consistent vote on the issues important to Cascade Bicycle Club.

Eileen Cody (34th – Burien, West Seattle, Vashon Island) Score 100% Rep. Cody, an avid rider of her bicycle, has been a leader in demonstrating the strong connection between how we build our transportation system and our health. As chair of the Health Care & Wellness committee, Rep. Cody was the second sponsor of HB 2370, including health in the state transportation system policy goals.

Jim Moeller (49th – Vancouver) Score 100%

HOUSE HONORABLE MENTIONS

Rep. Moeller has been a consistent and dependable supporter of bicycling. In 2011 Rep. Moeller prime sponsored and helped pass ESHB 1071, creating a complete streets grant program.

6

Jamie Pedersen (43rd – Seattle) Score 100% As chair of the Judiciary committee, Rep. Pedersen played an important role in helping to pass SB 5326, concerning negligent driving resulting in substantial bodily harm, great bodily harm, or death of a vulnerable user of a public way (a.k.a the “Vulnerable Users bill”) in 2011. He’s dedicated to continuing his work to make our streets safer for all, regardless of how one gets around.


House Training Wheels

While these Representatives did not always vote in support of bicycling, they took steps in the right direction and we’re hopeful that we can work with them to increase their support for bicycling.

Mike Armstrong (12th – Chelan County, Douglas County, Okanagan County) Score 44% As the ranking minority member on the Transportation committee Rep. Armstrong, while goodnatured in his approach, has regularly acted as a foil to policies that would move bicycling into the mainstream of transportation policy and planning. He took a positive step in signing onto a letter supporting the Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Program and clarifying the Main Street proviso in the Complete Streets Grant Program. We hope to work with Rep. Armstrong on even more positive steps in the future.

Ann Rivers (18th – Clark County, Cowlitz County) Score 33% Despite being a bicycle rider herself, Rep. Rivers has done little to help make it safe and convenient for others to ride and has expressed interest in policies that serve to discourage bicycling. Even with her disappointing record, we’re still hopeful that Rep. Rivers will recognize the many benefits of bicycling and begin working to provide more Washingtonians with the opportunity to ride.

Rep. Zeiger has shown strong support for recreational trails and other bicycle improvements in his district. He voted to move HB 2370, including health in the state transportation system policy goals, out of committee, though he ultimately voted against it on the House floor. We look forward to continuing a promising dialogue with Rep. Zeiger regarding how we can work together to create a better community through bicycling.

House Broken Chains

Unlike our list of champions, these Representatives consistently demonstrated opposition to creating a better community through bicycling through their votes and actions. Despite their disappointing records, we’re holding out hope that we can work with them to start riding in the right direction.

Jason Overstreet (42nd – Whatcom County) Score 11% Rep. Overstreet has unfailingly voted against providing people with the freedom and independence to safely ride their bicycle. We’re disappointed that Rep. Overstreet has yet to recognize that bicycling provides people with self-reliance, improves local economies and reduces health care costs – all virtues he claims to support.

Jay Rodne (5th – Issaquah, North Bend, Snoqualmie) Score 11% Rep. Rodne does not appear to understand the benefits bicycling and smart land use planning bring to communities. It’s unacceptable for a legislator representing a district home to tens of thousands of people who enjoy riding their bicycle to consistently vote against the values and interests of his constituents.

WASHINGTON STATE LEGISLATURE THE SENATE

Senate Legislator of the Year Scott White (46th – Kenmore, Lake Forest Park, Northeast Seattle) June 8, 1970 – October 21, 2011 Sen. Scott White was more than a champion for creating a better community through bicycling. He was a friend, a mentor, a smart and effective legislator, a loving father and husband, and a wonderful human being. We are grateful for having had the opportunity to get to know and work with Scott. He will always be in our hearts.

Senate Champions

These Senators demonstrated exceptional leadership in their work to create a better community through bicycling.

David Frockt (46th – Kenmore, Lake Forest Park, Northeast Seattle) Score 100% Sen. Frockt filled the Senate seat left open by the untimely death of Sen. Scott White. New to the Senate and its Transportation committee, widely known for its challenges, Sen. Frockt demonstrated intelligence, accessibility and effectiveness in his work to make bicycling safer and more convenient. He displayed a unique ability to skillfully navigate challenging transportation issues while balancing competing interests in order to find common sense solutions that make our streets safer for all.

Adam Kline (37th – South and Southeast Seattle) Score 100% Sen. Kline has provided more than a reliable vote in support of bicycling – he’s been a champion for protecting everyone who uses our roads. Chair of the Judiciary committee, Sen. Kline prime sponsored and worked to pass SB 5326, concerning negligent driving resulting in substantial bodily harm, great bodily harm, or death of a vulnerable user of a public way (a.k.a the “Vulnerable Users bill”) in 2011.

Christine Rolfes (23rd – Kitsap County) Score 100% Sen. Rolfes was new to the Senate and its Transportation committee in the 2012 legislative session, filling the vacancy left by Sen. Phil Rockefeller’s resignation. A devoted bicycle rider herself, Sen. Rolfes provided fearless leadership in navigating the challenging Transportation committee in support of making it convenient and safe for people to bicycle around Washington. She worked hard to connect Kitsap County with Seattle and the Olympic Peninsula through her efforts to ensure a bicycle-friendly ferry system and Hood Canal bridge, helping to provide people with an affordable way to get to work while promoting tourism and economic development.

These Senators demonstrated their commitment to creating a better community through bicycling in an especially critical or unique way on a specific bill or a number of issues.

Tracy Eide (30th – Federal Way, Milton, South King County) Score 100% Sen. Eide worked hard in her role as the vice chair of the Transportation committee to support pro-bicycling legislation and funding for bicycle infrastructure.

SENATE HONORABLE MENTIONS ■ SENATE TRAINING WHEELS

Derek Kilmer (26th – Kitsap County, Pierce County) Score 83%

10

As vice chair of the Ways & Means committee and the Capital Budget chair, Sen. Kilmer worked to include significant funding for bicycle and pedestrian projects to help cities and towns revitalize their downtown business districts in the capital budget.

Dan Swecker (20th – Lewis County, Thurston County) Score 100% Sen. Swecker, a member of the Transportation committee, deserves recognition for being the only member of his caucus with a perfect voting record in support of bicycling.

Senate Training Wheels

While these Senators did not always vote in support of bicycling, they took steps in the right direction and we’re hopeful that we can work with them to increase their support for bicycling.

Steve Litzow (41st – Bellevue, Mercer Island, Newcastle) Score 86% In his first term in the legislature, Sen. Litzow proved accessible and willing to take the easy votes in support of bicycling. We look forward to continuing the conversation with Sen. Litzow regarding how transit benefits his constituents and how bicycling provides a creative solution to lowering health care costs.

Joe Fain (47th – Black Diamond, Kent, Southeast King County) Score 86% As the assistant ranking minority member of the Transportation committee, Sen. Fain showed promise and potential in supporting bicycling. We’re hopeful that once Sen. Fain learns more about how bicycling can reduce congestion and save both families and taxpayers money, he’ll become a leader in creating a better community through bicycling.


Senate Broken Chains

Unlike our list of champions, these Senators consistently demonstrated opposition to creating a better community through bicycling through their votes and actions. Despite their disappointing records, we’re holding out hope that we can work with them to start riding in the right direction.

Andy Hill (45th – Kirkland, Sammamish, Woodinville) Score 29% Even though Sen. Hill represents several communities with highly developed bicycle networks, he frequently voted against pro-bicycling legislation and funding. His votes are even more disappointing when compared to those of his colleagues Sen. Litzow and Sen. Fain, with whom he normally aligns. We hope to work with Sen. Hill to bring his votes in line with the values and interests of his district.

Mary Margaret Haugen (10th – Island County, La Conner, Stanwood) Score 100% Don’t let Sen. Haugen’s voting record deceive you – her actions demonstrate that she does not support bicycling. Through the years, Sen. Haugen has expressed open hostility toward and a complete disinterest in a dialogue on bicycling. As chair of the Senate Transportation committee, Sen. Haugen actively works to block pro-bicycling legislation and funding. She worked to sabotage the passage of SHB 1217, the “Neighborhood Safe Speeds bill”, and HB 2370, including health in the state transportation system policy goals, while standing as the single largest roadblock to securing local transportation funding options. In an unprecedented move, Sen. Haugen agreed to negotiated language and signed the conference report on ESSB 6582, concerning local transportation revenue options, and then pulled her support before the bill could come up for a vote on the Senate floor, breaking the deal and killing the bill. It’s long past time for new leadership at the helm of the transportation committee.

While both of Sen. Sheldon’s seatmates from the 35th legislative district had strong voting records in support of bicycling, Sen. Sheldon had the worst voting record in his caucus, by a mile. Sen. Sheldon was the only member of the Transportation committee who did not vote to move SHB 1217, the “Neighborhood Safe Speeds bill”, out of committee and was the only member of his party to vote against SHB 1700, “Safe and Flexible Design Guidelines,” on the Senate floor. His record on bicycling appears dramatically out of step with the values of his district and we hope to work with Sen. Sheldon to improve his support for bicycling.
