Pavement condition reporting bill moves out of committee with amendment

HB 1490, sponsored by Rep. Jake Fey (D-Tacoma), was amended in the House Transportation Committee and passed out unanimously on February 21. In its initial form, HB 1490 repealed the pavement condition reporting requirement for cities and towns. After thoughtful discussions with members on the Transportation Committee, it was determined that more time was needed to assess the merits of the report. The amendment, offered by Rep. Ed Orcutt (R-Kalama), asks the Department of Transportation to work with cities and the Transportation Commission to review existing pavement preservation rating reporting requirements, and recommend to the Legislature whether a repeal of the report is warranted. The amendment also waives the reporting requirement for the 2017-2019 biennium.

AWC would like to extend a special thank you to both Rep. Fey, the sponsor of the legislation, and Rep. Orcutt, the sponsor of the amendment.
