O’Ban budget amendment aids future of UW Tacoma

Last night, the Senate Operating budget was amended to include a $400,000 appropriation for the University of Washington Tacoma branch.   The amendment, offered by Sen. Steve O’Ban, R-University Place, ensures the expansion of the UW Tacoma law school by investing in a pre-law program to pave the way for the new graduate program.

 “The law school is going to make UW Tacoma a more attractive institution,” said O’Ban. “I was grateful my colleagues agreed with investing in our future.”
