The transportation language in the bill could strengthen the case for including light rail as part of a new bridge across the Columbia River, said Rob Johnson, executive director of the Transportation Choices Coalition.

"It gives Vancouver and Clark County the incentive to create great connections to light rail," he said. "We would expect that there are people who would want to live near" light rail to reduce their use of cars, he said. "This will give local planners more tools in their toolbox to make sure these connections are strong."
