Yesterday Governor Chris Gregoire signed a new law that will require cattle trucks in Spokane and Pend Oreille counties that are more than 40,000 pounds gross weight to stop at a port of entry. Neighbors living along Barker and Harvard Roads complained to the Spokane Valley City Council last year that the cattle trucks were using State Highway 290 to bypass the port of entry and its inspections and then using those roads to connect back to I-90. The council worked with local legislators to get a law passed. Olympia reporter Jim Camden has more details here.
