Important Eastern Washington Projects Move Forward

“This bill enables safety improvement and paving projects in Eastern Washington to move forward as planned.”

WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) voted today to ensure important transportation safety and road maintenance projects move forward this summer as scheduled. The Highway and Transportation Funding Act of 2015 (H.R. 2353), passed the House 381-35 with bipartisan support and extends funding for transportation projects through the end of July.

McMorris Rodgers praised the bipartisan action to advance this important funding today. “This bill enables safety improvement and paving projects in Eastern Washington to move forward as planned,” McMorris Rodgers said. For Eastern Washington, the summer road construction period is an essential time for building and maintaining our road infrastructure. “Our roads must be safe and well maintained; it is essential to our economy and our Eastern Washington way of life,” McMorris Rodgers said.

McMorris Rodgers remains committed to important regional transportation priorities, such as the North Spokane Corridor and Highway 12 in Walla Walla.
