The Washington Chamber of Commerce hosted a big event over the weekend. Saturday morning, Senator Sandy Greiner and Representative Jarad Klein attended the Commerce’s first Legislative Briefing of this year. Many of the audience members raised questions regarding preschool funding. Senator Greiner responded and said there will be funding for preschools, but it may not be the same as now. Representative Klein said it was getting the help to the right people. Both agreed budget cuts will happen and they said when the cuts are done, they are hoping money will still be available for funding. Both Senator Greiner and Representative Klein said they are open to suggestions on how to remedy budget cuts.
