It is the responsibility of state government to have an efficient, accountable, economical method of providing acceptable work space for its agencies.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, John Spellman, Governor of the state of Washington, by virtue of the power vested in me, do hereby order that effective immediately all agency plans to expend funds for the purpose of remodeling, renovating or furnishing non-institutional state offices and related space are subject to the approval of the Director of General Administration. Agencies must secure such approval from the Director prior to committing to any such expenditures.
I have directed the Director of General Administration to establish and implement procedures to control the plans and related costs of the various agencies' office remodeling and renovation projects. He will execute this directive under the provisions of RCW 43.19.450, RCW 43.82.010, and section 33, Chapter 143, Laws of 1981.

have hereunto set
my hand and caused the seal of the State of
Washington to be affixed at Olympia this
