Elimination of the Washington Intergovernmental Review Process

On the 7th day of November, 1983, Governor Spellman issued Executive Order 83-17 establishing the Washington Intergovernmental Review Process pursuant to Federal Executive Order 12372.

The Washington Intergovernmental Review Process established by Executive Order 83-17 was to advise interested parties of potential federal funding applications. In exchange for states having such a process, the federal government agreed to accommodate or explain to applicants why their projects did not receive funding.

As part of the 1992 Supplemental Budget, it is necessary to eliminate the Washington Intergovernmental Review Process. The program has been scaled back several times in recent years, and recent correspondence with recipients indicated little opposition to eliminating the program altogether. Several other states, including Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Virginia have also recently discontinued their versions of the program in response to fiscal constraints.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Booth Gardner, Governor of the State of Washington, by virtue of the power vested in me, do hereby rescind Executive Order 83-17.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set
my hand and caused the seal of the State of
Washington to be affixed at Olympia this
2nd day of June A.D., Nineteen hundred and ninety-two.

Booth Gardner
Governor of Washington


Secretary of State
