Transportation Package Deal Breaks Down?

Friday brought the news that former Sate Sen. Gary George is starting a referral drive to repeal the gas tax increase that was one of the cornerstones of the transportation package adopted by the Legislature.

This is somewhat surpising because supposedly the anti-tax groups agreed to hold their fire in exchange for the Newberg-Dundee bypass being included in the package. It doesn’t sound like the repeal has legs (the mainline anti-tax groups have bigger fish to fry), but it’s interesting that the deal seems to be fraying at the edges.
