Supplemental Capital Budget boosts housing, water and other projects – The Washington State Legislature recently passed the 2022 supplemental budget. The biennial capital budget was passed last year; this is the year that simply makes tweaks and some additions to the two-year budget. But, this supplemental added $1.5 billion in new spending from the capital budget.
The largest proposed investments from the new $1.5 billion are:
• Housing ($440 million);
• Water ($251 million);
• Infrastructure ($200 million);
• Broadband ($100 million);
• School Seismic ($100 million); and
• Behavioral Health and Crisis Stabilization ($98 million).
