A key bill that affects trucking firms that haul in Washington just got the rubber stamp Friday in the state House of Representatives. Ruth Johnson reports from Olympia.

Johnson:  The bill would designate a 4 and a half mile stretch between the Port of Lewiston and the Port of Whitman at Wilma as a heavy haul truck corridor.  Mary Dye, the Republican lawmaker from Pomeroy, who introduced the bill, says the change is  vital for Washington's economy.

Dye: “This bill is much needed in order to facilitate the movement of freight from all of the northern tier of United States to the Pacific ocean.”

Johnson: Both State Routes 128 and 193 are affected. The bill passed unanimously in the House and now heads to the Senate.

Ruth Johnson, Olympia.
