September 3, 2013

Governor Jay Inslee (D-Wash.) and King County Executive Dow Constantine held a news conference today discussing a possible transportation package this year. The governor said that he will call a special session in November to pass a transportation package if the votes are there.

When asked about the Columbia River Crossing project and its inclusion in a possible package, the governor stated that he is looking at alternative ways to finance the bridge. He also mentioned that the Columbia River Crossing project was not the reason the transportation package didn’t pass last session.
