Gov. Christine Gregoire has recommended closing Spokane's Museum of Arts and Culture in her new budget proposal (pdf), released today.

Under the heading, "How We Achieve Savings" in education, the governor wrote, "Close the state historical museums in Tacoma and Spokane, and eliminate state-funded educational programs and outreach activities through the state historical societies." According to her proposal, this could save the state $5.2 million.

In more positive news, the governor recommended continued progress on the North South Freeway, more funding for Spokane's Second Harvest food bank and money for renovating Eastern Washington University's Patterson Hall.
