OSU Cascades leaders and state lawmakers made their case to buy a new building in the Old Mill District for its graduate programs. The College's President, Becky Johnson, and lawmakers like Chris Telfer and Jason Conger testified before the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Capitol Construction Thursday.  State Senator Telfer is cautiously optimistic: “I have spoken with a couple of the co-chairs. They feel fairly confident that some projects won't be funded because they're not ready to go. So I'm somewhat confident, but not going to put any money on it yet.”  Representative Jason Conger says the OSU Cascades representatives were impressive: “All three of them offered a different perspective about purchasing instead of leasing the building to expand OSU Cascades. And the panel was receptive to their message.” It will be several weeks before a final budget decision will be made.
