As we wrap up the week, two short but notable bits of information.
First, Congressman Denny Heck shared with SR-167 project supporters yesterday a conversation he had with Jay Inslee in wich the governor-elect declared, “I will do everything humanly possible to get the funding needed to complete SR-167.” When the Congressman asked whether he could share this story publicly, Inslee declared, “Yes.”
A simple statement, but one that confirms that leaders across Washington understand how this project is one of statewide significance.
We also wanted to share a quick follow-up to our previous post about the Washington Transportation Commission’s revenue proposal. The Puget Sound Business Journal on Monday ran a story elaborating on the Commission’s proposal, setting the larger context for the need for a transportation revenue package and giving credence to the notion that lawmakers appear to be getting serious about the need to invest in our state’s infrastructure system.
