And dont get fooled by all those negative ads, estimates are this will 'cost' $10 per month per average household in increased fuel costs- a small price to pay towards a cleaner, livable planet.At Friends of the San Juans we work hard to ensure a healthy future for people and nature. We know with Initiative 1631, we can protect our health, and pass a cleaner, healthier Salish Sea region to the next generation.
