“The informed and targeted investments in the proposed budget go beyond the typical proposals for the 22nd Legislative District,” said Sen. Sam Hunt (D-Olympia). “Because our district contains many state agencies and the capitol, several projects may get offered funding. This year, we’re working to secure funding for projects that go beyond. The Nisqually Tribe Healing Village is a mental health facility that will provide high-quality treatment support aimed at supporting successful recovery. The local grain conveyance and storage system expands the Craft Brewing and Distilling college curriculum SPSCC, offering more opportunities for students in a robust industry. The Tugboat Parthia Pavilion recognizes the maritime heritage of the region and connects the Port of Olympia to other historic parts of the city—including the farmer’s market. These projects and more fosters boosts the wellbeing of our community as well as our local economy.”
