Region Has Big Plans for Spokane Airport

Washington, Idaho wants to position Spokane region as the intermodal Inland Pacific Hub -- a more convenient, lower-cost global center of commerce.

Goedde said he remains hopeful that Idaho will back the effort. "The state of Washington did appropriate $250,000, which was their part of the study. And it still appears that our federal people are going to come through with a half-million that they had suggested that they could land, so Idaho is right now looking like the poor stepsister," he said. "We're still working on what we need to do."
