McMorris Rodgers to Host Eastern Washington Transportation Tour and Summit

(Spokane, WA) With Congress set to consider a major transportation funding bill next year, Congresswoman Cathy McMorris wants to make sure Eastern Washington is well-positioned to have that funding bill reflect Eastern Washington’s regional priorities like the north-south corridor and U.S. 12 improvements.

That is why today McMorris Rodgers is hosting a transportation roundtable at WSU Spokane. Eastern Washington business, government and transportation leaders will join McMorris Rodgers and Representative John Mica at WSU Spokane to discuss the future of transportation and infrastructure improvements in Eastern Washington. Representative Mica (R-FL) is the Ranking Republican on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee–the committee in the House that will determine where federal transportation dollars are spent.

“I am pleased Representative Mica will be able to see first-hand the many important transportation projects underway in Eastern Washington,” McMorris Rodgers said. “Without a doubt, developing Eastern Washington’s transportation infrastructure is important in order to provide better conditions to improve the flow of traffic, make our roads safer, and transport products grown and made in our region.”
