Capital Budgets Galore

Today the House released its proposed biennial 2013-15 capital budget and the Senate held a pubic hearing on its biennial proposal.

The Washington House’s proposed capital budget provides funding for a number of projects across higher education. This includes funding for two projects at EvergreenĀ – the renovation of the Science Lab 1 Basement and the Science Lab 2 second floor.

In addition the budget includes funding for minor works preservation and preventative maintenance. Though theĀ  House’s budget does provide some funding for minor works preservation it does not fully fund the College’s request.

The proposed budget does not fund the design phase of the Lecture Hall Renovation, the predesign for the renovation of Seminar I, and the acquisition of land and design for the Tacoma Campus.

Next Steps

The Senate Ways & Means Committee is scheduled to hold an executive session on their proposal on Thursday. The House expected to do the same on their proposal on Friday morning.
