Car Tab, Bike Fees Part of House Transportation Package

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Washington's State House is closer to creating a transportation package that would raise nearly $10 billion in the next 10 years, but it's going to cost you.

House Democrats have unveiled a transportation revenue package that would raise $9.8 billion over the next decade with the help of a 10-cent bump in the gas tax, a new annual car tab fee pegged at 0.7 percent of the vehicle's value and more than $3 billion in new bonds.
    
Also included is a new $25 fee on bicycles sold for at least $500.
    
The plan was introduced Wednesday by Rep. Judy Clibborn, D-Mercer Island, who chairs the House Transportation Committee.
    
In addition to $1 billion for both the state and local governments to maintain infrastructure, the package would allocate about $3 billion to help fund new and existing road projects.
    
If all the projects are fully funded, House Democrats estimate the proposal would create 56,000 jobs.
