Mayor Jenny Durkan and City Attorney Pete Holmes hold a press conference to announce that the city will pursue litigation to block Tim Eyman's unconstitutional Initiative 976. If  fully implemented I-976 would force the City of Seattle to cut more than 100,000 bus hours. In addition, the City of Seattle would lose funding for ORCA Opportunity, Mayor Durkan's program to provide free bus access for 15,000 Seattle High School students and 1,500 low-income residents. I-976 also would cut funding for most of City of Seattle's pothole repair, neighborhood safety measures like stairways and traffic circles and significantly impact street repaving, crosswalks and street cleaning budgets.
