BEND, OR -- Deschutes County Commissioner Tammy Baney will head up a committee that is expected to finish work on a 30-year transportation plan for the state. Baney was appointed to the Governor's transportation committee in 2014. She says their work came to a halt when Governor Kitzhaber resigned in February.

 

Commissioner Baney is happy they're getting back at it. "Transportation right now is a very political subject. But, this work too many people have put a lot of time and effort and energy into making up this particular draft that we have. It's great work and it needs to be completed."

 

The transportation panel is scheduled to come up with a plan by the end of March. "The Governor [Brown] really is wanting to complete the 30-year vision for the state of Oregon. It is unfortunate that it's being linked to the recent Legislative session, that was more aligned in a transporation funding package," Baney tells KBND.
