Metro: Fund It – Fix!
Some 40 years after the League of Women Voters of the National Capital Area (LWVNCA) adopted positions in support of Metro, including a dedicated source of funding for the then-new rapid transit system, it has joined with more than a dozen nonprofit organizations in backing a call for dedicated funding for the system. While a major emphasis of the original positions was to get people out of their cars, along with the need for adequate financing, the current emphasis is to obtain the funding that will allow Metro to fix the system so that it will continue to reduce traffic congestion in the DC area--while serving as the economic engine for the region.
