A landmark transportation bill for Oregon looks like it will soon become reality. The state House passed a measure today that raises taxes and fees by $5.3 billion over the next decade. That money will be used to relieve highway bottlenecks, boost transit and improve safety.

Washington’s governor made a trip to rail-lines in Eastern Washington Thursday to sign legislation that funds transportation projects. Outside Cheney, Governor Jay Inslee also drove a small train on tracks that will benefit from the new bill.
