Those of us in transportation are waiting anxiously for a new federal transportation bill to be auhtorized. It’s kind of like my college days when I would try to pay my bills without knowing how much my paycheck was going to be because I didn’t always work the same amount of hours.
We’re definetely expecting a cut in transportation spending with the new bill, we just don’t know how much. And that makes it hard to plan. A document released last week by two lead Senators on transportation issues says there would also be job cuts under the House Republican proposed transportation bill. 141,000 of them.
So what does Washington state stand to lose under that bill? Transportation Issues Daily has a look.
