Governor Inslee Tours Cashmere High School

Cashmere High School

Upgrades at Cashmere High School are contained in the State’s Capital Budget. But Governor Jay Inslee says those funds are in jeopardy unless the Legislature adopts the budget which after three special sessions is still not done

The Governor made a visit to Cashmere Friday as part of a cross-state tour urging the state legislature to pass a capital budget.  NCWLIFE’s Grant Olson caught up with the governor at Cashmere High School. . .

Cashmere Schools Superintendent Glenn Johnson says the problem with the budget not being passed in a timely manner is the cost rates going up for their project at Cashmere High School:

Cashmere passed a bond to upgrade H-VAC, electrical and mechanical systems in the building as well as improve safety and classroom technology.  Governor Inslee got a tour of Cashmere High Friday to see, in person, the needs there.  Inslee also made stops in Sedro-Woolley to visit a food bank and Mt. Vernon to tour an elementary school.
