Eye On Olympia

Where'd that money go?

Remember last year's brouhaha over Gonzaga University's $1.5 million request for a stadium, err, parking lot? State lawmakers had heartburn, and so did the university, reluctant to surrender control of the planned stadium in exchange for a relatively small percentage of state construction money. Both backed out, and the deal died.
So where'd the money go? Well, it may be headed to Bellingham. The state Senate budget committee has earmarked the cash for Western Washington University, to help pay for damage from a July fire in a computer room.
