Washington voters will not be asked to raise gas taxes or any other tax related to roads this fall. The House Transportation Committee agreed yesterday that there’d be no ballot measure sent to voters asking for a tax increase to pay for more road projects this year.

The proposed House Transportation budget includes $72 million over the next two years for the North Spokane Corridor, $12 million to replace the Keller Ferry, plus money for a variety of projects such as Havana Street, Bigelow Gulch Road, the Geiger Spur rail project and for six bicycle and pedestrian safety projects around Spokane.

The Spokesman-Review has more on the proposed budget.
