What to Look for in Seattle’s Next Transportation Levy "The new eight-year levy would be a successor to Move Seattle, a nine-year transportation levy approved in 2015 and set to expire at year’s end. That levy was a $930 million package that funds about 30% of the City’s transportation budget. Not passing a successor would blow a huge hole in that budget right as the City is grappling with a large general fund deficit, which is estimated around a quarter billion dollars in 2025. It would also severely limit Seattle’s ability to provide a local match to go after federal dollars at time when they are flowing in the wake of Congress passing President Biden’s jobs and infrastructure bill."
