Rep. Mike Steele announces $10.5 million in 12th District projects included in final 2022-23 supplemental capital budget

Rep. Mike Steele, ranking member of the House Capital Budget Committee and lead Republican negotiator, announced today that more than $10.5 million in 12th District projects was included in the recently approved 2022-23 supplemental capital budget.

“As a top capital budget negotiator, it’s extremely gratifying to help bring this funding home to the 12th District. While operating budgets take care of most state agency funding requests, capital budgets pay for more permanent items. In essence, they are construction budgets with funding for anything from major projects like schools and low-income housing to local parks and other public facilities,” said Steele, R-Chelan.

“This year’s capital budget was truly historic. In a supplemental budget year, we are making more statewide community investments than the previously approved two-year plan. I’m extremely happy to see the number of projects included for our communities.”

The supplemental capital budget spends $1.5 billion, with $107.3 million from the sale of general obligation bonds. The remaining $1.39 billion is comprised of a combination of federal funds, General Fund-State (GF-S) transfers, and other dedicated funding sources. It leaves $210,000 in bond capacity.

12th Legislative District projects highlights include:

  • Trades District port project: $3 million
  • Peshastin Cross Over Siphon Pipe (Peshastin): $309,000
  • Wenatchee City Pool Repairs (Wenatchee): $550,000
  • Wenatchee Valley YMCA (Wenatchee): $515,000
  • Chelan Douglas Food Distribution Center (Malaga): $1 million
