If you follow transportation much, you’ve probably heard that negotiations have failed to produce a new state tax package for transportation projects this year.

In a statement released last night, Governor Jay Inslee and House and Senate transportation leaders said they’ll try again when lawmakers meet next month for the regular legislative session.

The legislature struggled all year to reach agreement on a transportation plan, even making it one of hte subjects of a special session in November.
