Congressman Adam Smith released the following statement after Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) announced agreements on the disadvantaged business enterprises (DBE) program:

“I am glad to see that WSDOT took steps to ensure compliance with the DBE program standards.  Over the last year, I have had an ongoing dialogue with community stakeholders on this issue, and have received a lot of feedback.  As this project continues, I will continue to monitor the situation  and remain in close contact with all involved.”
