Chris Gregoire will tell lawmakers today what she wants them to tackle in her final legislative session (or at least, final regular session) as governor.

In her annual State of the State address, Gregoire will give details on what kind of new tax or fee revenue the Legislature should pursue for transportation needs. A task force she convened called for $21 billion in projects.
