Washington Governor, Lawmakers Meet On Transportation Funding

October 31, 2013 J

Washington Governor Jay Inslee has said he wants a transportation funding package on his desk by the end of November. Key lawmakers met with the Democratic governor Wednesday on this topic.

Afterwards, Senate Transportation co-chair Tracey Eide was noncommittal when asked if there will be a special session of the legislature in November.

“That’s what we’re here to find out and the agreement is that we’re all going to be moving forward,” she said. “But at this point in time we’re not ready to make any suggestions or comments.”

Eide was the only meeting participant to speak with Capitol reporters after the meeting. The others left out a back door.
