Pew Research Gives Washington State An "A" For Infrastructure Government Performance

From the great news for the state of Washington, bad news for Dino Rossi, a new 50 state report card released on May 4, 2008 gives Washington an “A” grade for government performance for infrastructure maintenance. Pew Research gave 23 states a grade lower than C+ for the way they maintained bridges, roads, and other infrastructures, while a B- grade was the overall average. The high score was awarded to only three states. The Pew accolade follows last year’s gushing story in Forbes about Washington’s excellent business climate and Governor Gregoire’s appearance on the cover of Governing Magazine which honored her as one of many Public Officials of the year.
