Rep. Jim Walsh shares remarks during final passage of House Bill 5974, which directs funding for Democrats’ 16-year, $16.8 billion transportation package


Rep. Jim Walsh, R-Aberdeen, shares remarks during final passage of Senate Bill 5974, which directs funding for Democrats' 16-year, $16.8 billion transportation proposal — the “Move Ahead Washington” package.

Senate Bill 5974 is the revenue proposal that would raise various transportation-related fees and taxes. It would also tap into the state's Public Works Assistance Account (PWAA) with a transfer of $100 million per year for the life of this package. The strategy to use the PWAA replaces the controversial 6-cent-per-gallon tax on fuel exported from Washington's five refineries to neighboring states.
