Submitted by Paul Ellis

Washington State Senator Mary Margaret Haugen--chair of the Transportation Committee-continues to wrestle with the growing gap between transportation needs and the funding that state, federal and local sources can be expected to generate.

Opposition from RAMP, Washington ports, and may help forestall her proposal to impose a new container tax, but the problem will remain whatever the outcome on that specific legislation.

Paul Ellis is lead staff for RAMP; an employee of the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber, Ellis led the Pierce County Transportation Advisory Committee (PCTAC), the community's largest transportation planning effort.
