How much money would you guess is spent on transportation in Spokane County? Why guess when you can use a new tool that tells you? A new online map by the Washington State Legislative Evaluation and Accountability Program and the Office of Financial Management has information on how much money is spent in each of the state’s 39 counties and 49 legislative districts on transportation, but also how many employees work in the field of transportation (and other fields), the statewide Ominbus Budget divided by spending area, state revenue by source and a LOT of other info.

If you’re looking for information on how the state spends money, this is the place for you. The map of capital and transportation projects is most interesting to me of course. Just click the county you’re interested in and “view report” and probably more information that you could ever need comes up.
