Well, one Washington Senator sure knows a priority when he sees one: free coffee. Yep, Kirk Person, R-Monroe, filed legislation this week to reinstate those old road signs advertising free coffee at rest stops. You used to see them all the time but the Department of Transportation has started to phase them out for a couple reasons.
If you pay any attention to transportation at all, you know that transportation funds are severely limited and all projects and programs are funded on their “priority” level these days. If something is a major priority, chances are money will be allocated to make it happen. If it’s not a priority, well, good luck but it’s not going to happen.
