Oregon Tolling

I’m fighting Oregon’s plan to place tolls on the I-5 and I-205 bridges, which would unfairly force Southwest Washington commuters to pay for Oregon infrastructure they barely use. Such a move would penalize Washington residents who must commute to work in Oregon, create no new lanes for congestion relief on I-5 or I-205, and would make it harder for both states to rebuild or update the aging I-5 bridge in the future.

Both roadways are federal interstate highways, and as this region’s federal representative, I’ll keep fighting against any plan that unfairly treats Southwest Washington residents like piggy banks and provides them little to no benefit in return.
