OLYMPIA, Wash. —

The Washington state House has released a transportation budget proposal its author calls "no frills."

The budget plan released Thursday would allocate $8.4 billion over the next two years - slightly less than the transportation budget proposal unveiled Wednesday in the state Senate.

The proposal includes little in the way of funding for new projects. It allocates funding for continued work on the Alaskan Way Viaduct project, the state Route 520 bridge replacement and creating high-occupancy lanes on Interstate 5 in Tacoma.

Democratic Rep. Judy Clibborn of Mercer Island is the House Transportation Committee chairwoman. She said that in addition to the budget plan, she expects to release a new transportation revenue proposal next week to fund additional projects.
