Wyman says Heritage Center a priority for herJanuary 18, 2013 @ 12:54 pm
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Kim Wyman, the state's new secretary of state, says she wants to revive the idea of a Heritage Center for the state's Capitol campus.
Wyman said Friday that resuming planning for the construction of the building that would house the state archives and state library is at the top of her legislative goals this session.
She called it an important project and said "we need to get it back on track."
Wyman also says she wants to ensure a statewide printed voters' pamphlet for all federal and state offices in even-year primary elections. And she wants to eliminate the requirement to hold a primary in judicial races where two or less candidates file, which would save the state about $1 million every two years.
