The Statewide Transportation Improvement Program or the STIP, is Oregon's transportation spending list 

Our politicians can ask for money for roads and added capacity to reduce congestion. Or they can ask for money for  transit, bike and pedestrian paths and amenities around our roads. More often than 
not, they ask for money for multimodal transportation system, not road capacity. 

Most of the money comes from state and federal fuel, auto and truck taxes. Once they are dedicated for a transit project they cannot be moved to a road project. If you don't ask for money for added road capacity, you will not receive any road money. 

We are building our way into congestion !
The Statewide Transportation Improvement Program, known as the STIP, is Oregon's four-year transportation capital improvement program. It is the document that identifies the funding for, and scheduling of, transportation projects and programs. It includes projects on the federal, state, city and county transportation systems, multimodal projects (highway, passenger rail, freight, public transit, bicycle and pedestrian), and projects in the National Parks, National Forests and Indian tribal lands.

Oregon Transportation Plan (OTP)
The new OTP, adopted September 20, 2006, supersedes the 1992 Plan. The 1992 OTP established a vision of a balanced, multimodal transportation system and called for an expansion of ODOTís role in funding non-highway investments.
