Most Washington voters think upgrading our seismically vulnerable school buildings is a state responsibility, NPI poll finds

The find­ing, unveiled by NPI at a pub­lic hear­ing in the Sen­ate Ways & Means Com­mit­tee, affirms that vot­ers see the Leg­is­la­ture as prin­ci­pal­ly respon­si­ble for uphold­ing the state’s para­mount duty to “make ample pro­vi­sion” for the edu­ca­tion of all of the state’s chil­dren, as the Framers of the Con­sti­tu­tion intend­ed when they wrote Wash­ing­ton’s plan of government.
