Gregoire proposes increased spending on Puget Sound recovery

Despite difficult financial times, Washington Governor Christine Gregoire is hoping to increase spending on Puget Sound recovery by roughly $51 million dollars over the next two years. Gregoire has championed the cause of restoring Puget Sound, still the budget shortfall is predicted to hit other environmental and resource management projects hard over the next couple of years. Cutbacks may include, fewer Fish and Wildlife enforcement officers, and a smaller budget for environmental research at the state level. Read Seattle Times coverage here.
