Northwestern Washington U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen (D-WA, 2), a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, announced today what's on the table—out of the $40 billion in stimulus package transportation money—for Washington state.
The House legislation includes the following funding for Washington state:
- $847,078,890 in total funding to modernize Washington state infrastructure
- $529,547,455 for highways, roads and bridges
- $216,584,501 to construct and maintain public transit
- $100,946,934 for wastewater treatment to provide clean water
Transit dollars make up about 25 percent of the pie. The package could come to a full vote as early as next week.
