Governor Signs Transportation Bill: Some Cheer, Some Cry

Coverage by the Business Journal.

Good news for local governments looking for money for potholes. Bad news for environmentalists.

It appears that the anti-tax folks have been bought off by the Newberg-Dundee bypass funding in the bill (one of the reasons to cry). I heard some early rumblings that some environmental organizations might try to refer this, but I have not heard anything about this recently, so I’m assuming we’ll just cry in our beer.

Oh, and expect the Transportation Commission to quietly allocate $30M from this for Columbia River Crossing funding.
