House Transportation Chair Judy Clibborn (D-Mercer Island) has issued the following statement in response to the newest transportation package proposal from Senators King and Hobbs:
“I am encouraged by the new bipartisan proposal from Senators King and Hobbs. We must take action this session to build a better transportation system for our state, and this is an important first step towards that goal.
It is only one step however – the legislation must still pass the Senate before bicameral negotiations can resume in earnest. I look forward to a robust discussion between our two chambers when that occurs.”
