Pavement condition reporting bill moving through the process

HB 1490, concerns the requirement of cities to biennially report pavement condition data to the Department of Transportation. HB 1490 passed the House unanimously and is scheduled for public hearing in the Senate Transportation Committee on Monday, March 13. The bill directs 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. It also waives the reporting requirement for the 2017-2019 biennium. This has been a priority bill for AWC.

AWC would like to extend a special thank you to the bill's sponsor, Rep. Jake Fey (D-Tacoma), and to Rep. Ed Orcutt (R-Kalama) who worked with us to amend the bill. Their work and support were integral in the bill successfully passing the House with a unanimous vote.
