Governor Releases Principles, Action Plan to Guide Transportation Investment

During a news conference yesterday, Governor Inslee announced his guiding principles for a transportation investment bill. The bill will center around creating and sustaining a thriving economic climate that spurs job growth, according to Inslee's camp and four principes will guide investments:

•Jobs.
•Fix it first and maintain what we have.
•Finish what we’ve started and invest in the future.
•Explore new ways of funding a balanced and multimodal system.

Transportation Issues Daily takes a look at these guiding principles and a policy brief outlining an "action plan."
