Proposed State Transportation Funding Package Unveiled

House Democrats in Olympia rolled out a nearly $10 billion transportation package yesterday that would boost taxes on gasoline, increase car tabs and even charge a bicycle fee to raise money.

Overall, the package would put billions of dollars into highway projects and ferry operations and terminals.
The Seattle Times takes a close look at the proposed package.
