OLYMPIA — A state budget proposed by the Senate and released Tuesday would fund only a portion of the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program projects proposed by the House budget. The Senate’s smaller $30 million allocation to the program eliminates $342,620 for the city of Wenatchee to purchase Saddle Rock; $849,200 to preserve farmland near Omak; $244,800 for burning and thinning in the Sinlahekin wildlife Area near Tonasket; and $75,107 for trails in Twisp.
