Gubernatorial candidate Dino Rossi will be in Spokane this afternoon to hold a press conference regarding the transportation financial plan he will implement if elected. That plan includes $2.2 billion for work on the North Spokane Corridor, eliminating sales tax on hybrid, electric and alternative-fuel vehicles for the next decade and having the state motor pool filled with those types of vehicles by 2015, putting $500 million toward 27 “unfunded, underfunded or delayed” projects, and $368 million into the account that pays for ferry construction and terminals.

Read the details in thisSpokesman article and let us know if you agree with detractors who say Rossi’s plan isn’t feasible and our transportation problems won’t be solved overnight by a ‘road and bridge fairy.’
