“As the House prepares to consider the 2007-09 Capital Budget, Rep. Tom Campbell (R-Roy) today announced proposed funding for four 2nd District projects that are included in the budget.
The House budget proposal includes appropriations of: $1 million for the Bethel Community Center; $823,000 for Mashel State Park; $160,000 for the Eatonville Family Park; and $350,000 for the Rainier Lifelong Learning Center….
The budget proposal also includes $350,000 for the Rainier Lifelong Center. The goal is to create a food and clothing bank, a youth center, library, museum, learning arts center and a disaster survival center in an existing building. Last year, Campbell was able to appropriate $75,000 for a new heating system for the center, and in the 2005 budget, he got enough to fix the roof of the historic structure — ‘the old school house.’
Campbell noted that this is the first step for the 2007 Capital Budget. It must be voted out by both the House and the Senate before it goes to the Governor for her signature. The 2007 Legislative session ends on April 22,” quoting Rep. Tom Campbell’s Press Release.
