New committee is part of transportation funding package, HB 2017
SALEM – The Oregon Transportation Commission is seeking Oregonians interested in volunteering for the new Continuous Improvement Advisory Committee. This important committee was created by the Oregon Legislature in the recent transportation funding bill, HB 2017. The committee will advise the commission on how to improve the Oregon Department of Transportation by recommending ways to make the agency more efficient, recommending measures to gauge the agency’s performance, and addressing audits.
“The Continuous Improvement Advisory Committee will be a valuable resource to the Oregon Transportation Commission in helping ODOT become more efficient and ensuring the agency is performing well,” said Commission Chair Tammy Baney, who will chair the committee. “The committee’s work will ensure that recent transportation investments made by the legislature and Oregon’s taxpayers are spent effectively.”
