In October of 1939 the Rainier School opened in Buckley. Although it has undergone many changes throughout the years, today, the Rainier School cares for our state's most vulnerable disabled citizens. The Rainier School provides a home for these folks in a caring and safe environment. It is also an important part of Buckley's economy. The Rainier School has never been a partisan issue as all of the members of your legislative delegation join together to support the Rainier School. However, as an aging facility, it's become necessary to do some remodeling to keep the Rainier School functioning properly. I am very pleased to announce that we were able to get $3 million in the Capitol Budget to move forward with these long overdue renovations, which will also provide income for local contractors and folks in the building trades.
