    1. SCOG Regional Project Selection Evaluation Process: March 26, 2021. Comments on Non-Roadway Funding Set-Aside— Discontinue the 10% Set-Aside and place these funds back into road and bridge preservation and maintenance projects where they are needed. 2. TAC Project ranking: Reduce the 10 points for TAC Committee Priority to 5 points and add these 5 points to Preservation and Maintenance for a total of 20 points where it’s needed. After listening to this state legislative sessions concerns and WSDOT reports preservation and maintenance of the states roads and bridges are in deep trouble mainly due to lack of priority of funding for preservation and maintenance needs. Thank you for considering.
