Pavement condition reporting bill passes legislature

HB 1490 sponsored by Rep. Jake Fey (D-Tacoma) concerns the requirement of cities to report pavement condition data to the Department of Transportation. HB 1490 passed the Legislature and is headed to Governor Inslee’s desk for signature.

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 thanks 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 and Senate with unanimity.
