    Many public and private sector organizations must both fulfill their roles and cooperate with each other to meet performance goals for the multimodal freight system. These organizations include federal agencies, state agencies, local governments, regional freight organizations, and freight industry participants. Following is a description of some of the key freight system players, including their responsibilities and funding sources at both the federal and state level for freight transportation projects. This section also contains a short summary of the limitations on what state revenue can be collected and how it can be expended to maintain and improve freight systems.

    Washington state law1 recognizes that many stakeholders must work together in order to maintain and improve transportation systems and facilities of statewide significance. State law defines transportation facilities of statewide significance, which include a subset of the state-owned highway transportation system, the Interstate Highway System, freight railroad system, Columbia-Snake River System, marine port facilities, and services related to marine activities affecting international and national trade, including key freight transportation corridors serving these marine port facilities. By considering the needs of freight in planning activities, partners across the state can help to support the multimodal freight system and economic vitality. WSDOT is committed to helping partners integrate freight into the mainstream transportation discussion.

    The Washington state transportation budget2 pays for the operations and capital costs of maintaining, preserving, and improving the highway and ferry systems and enforcement on the state highway system. With budgets tightening, WSDOT is focusing its resources on the maintenance and preservation of existing transportation assets. Revenues available for transportation purposes include federal funds, state funds (including taxes and fees), bonds, and local funds. A portion of the budget goes to local governments. State agencies supported by the state transportation budget include WSDOT, the Freight Mobility Strategic 1 RCW 47.06.140: Transportation facilities and services of statewide significance. http://apps.leg.wa.gov/Rcw/default.aspx?cite=47.06.1402 WSDOT.
