“We thank the Legislature and governor for prioritizing higher education in the final state operating budget.  Our elected leaders not only reduced tuition for our students and families, but made the necessary investment to make it all possible. This plan recognizes the direct link between tuition levels and state funding for our colleges, and helps to rebuild Washington’s role in providing affordable, outstanding higher education. We also appreciate the salary increases for our faculty and staff, who are key to our students’ success. The Legislature had to make many tough choices this session, and we applaud the recognition that community and technical colleges are one of the best investments our state can make for students, employers and our economy.”
