With each passing week, the future of a four-county RTA proposal seems bleaker and bleaker. The missed deadline for an agreement among the Big Four this January and L. Brooks Patterson's unequivocal rejection of a regional transit plan in his State of the County address are not encouraging. While we will keep organizing north of 8 Mile and fighting for a transit system for the entire region, it is time to put plan B—a regional transit proposal between Wayne and Washtenaw Counties—into motion. Join us for our Wayne County transit organizing meeting to plan our strategy for getting a Wayne-Washtenaw regional transit proposal on the ballot this year. This is a campaign we know we can win—we just need to your help. We will be in the Cass Commons parlor from 6:00 to 7:30 pm, and food will be served. All are welcome! Public Meeting.

You are invited to our next meeting on Thursday March 17 at 6pm at the Cass Corridor Commons, 4605 Cass Ave, Detroit, Michigan 48201. A Facebook event for the meeting is at https://www.facebook.com/events/1581177885539695/ Please RSVP, share and invite your friends. CCL has over 300 volunteer led chapters, including 10 in Michigan. Our chapters work in concert to advocate for carbon fee and dividend legislation, http://citizensclimatelobby.org/carbon-fee-and-dividend/. This legislation would: * Levy a steadily rising federal fee on fossil fuels at the source: mine, well, or port of entry. * Distribute all revenues to U.S. households on an equitable basis as a monthly dividend check, offsetting higher energy costs for most American families. * Include a border tariff adjustment to discourage businesses from relocating where they can emit more C02. This will also encourage other nations to adopt equivalent carbon pricing. At our meeting we will be discussing our Citizens Climate Lobby actions and plan for our in-district meetings with our US Representatives. I hope to see you there.
