Months of long and tough negotiating produced a bipartisan capital budget that will help fund significant improvements for our communities,” said Steele. “I'm incredibly grateful for all the work and time everyone put into the process.

“This capital budget is a bipartisan proposal that would provide for the priorities and immediate needs of our state such as mental health and education,” said Goehner. “Although not all our of our requests were funded, it will also offer funding for much-needed infrastructure improvements and community projects in the 12th District and around Washington state.”
