The Washington State Capital Budget represents long term investments in infrastructure. Annual appropriations represents 7% of state spending, or $6.6B (including funds previously appropriated but not spent, and then re-appropriated from previous biennia). In 2015-17 new capital appropriations were $3.7B. In 2015-17 30.9% of the capital budget went to Natural Resources, compared to 23.7% for public schools and 21.3% for higher education. Approximately half the capital budget comes from the sale of state bonds, while the remainder comes from federal grants and specific accounts, such as the public works assistance account, water pollution control revolving account, and trust land revenues (DNR managed lands for schools).
