Gregoire To Propose Transportation Funding Package

Washington Governor Chris Gregoire said Tuesday she is preparing a new transportation package that would rival the multi-billion-dollar deal she helped approve in 2005. She plans to explain the plan during a budget proposal next week.
In an interview, Gregoire cited the need to fund basic maintenance of transportation infrastructure and pay for major new projects. How to pay for these needs though? The Tacoma News Tribune has the story.
