In a wide-ranging interview with State Rep. Jim Moeller, he discusses Clark County's favorite topic, the CRC or Columbia River Crossing.

When asked on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being an assurance the Washington State Legislature will get funding passed this year, Moeller would only give it a 5. He noted Washington State has several mega-transportation projects that are needed. He made that point to differentiate us from Oregon — already on the fast track to approve its part of the CRC funding — which only has the CRC as a mega-project. This is the second installment in a five-part series.
