The Transportation Commission is an independent state agency whose seven citizen members
are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate. The Executive Director is
responsible for monitoring the financial activities of the Commission.
The Commission exercises responsibilities in preparing the state's transportation plan, proposing
the state's transportation investment plan and working with the Governor, the state Legislature,
the Secretary of Transportation and others across the state in formulating transportation policy.
The Commission also is the state's tolling authority responsible for setting all highway tolls and
fares for the Washington State Ferries.
The Commission provides a public forum for transportation policy development and functions. In
that role, the Commission adopts a comprehensive and balanced statewide transportation plan
that reflects the priorities of government and addresses local, regional and statewide needs.
The Commission has four full-time employees and had actual expenditures of $386,056 and
$2,726,868 in fiscal year 2005 and 2006, respectively. The increase in fiscal year 2006 was due
to the Legislature providing $1.5 million to the Commission for a comprehensive study to
determine the feasibility of administering certain tolls. The final report on this issue was adopted
by the Commission in September 2006. Legislature also approved $1.15 million to conduct a
statewide rail capacity and needs analysis; the final report is due December 2006.
