Findings—Intent—2010 1st sp.s. c 27:
"The legislature finds that institutions of higher education are key to the future employment opportunities of Washington citizens and to the economic well-
being of the state. The legislature finds that the recruitment of entrepreneurial researchers at institutions of higher education and the formation of research innovation teams will further enhance faculty recruitment and economic development. The legislature further finds that current financial aid and early childhood education programs are underfunded and subject to the unpredictability of the state budget. It is the intent of the legislature to direct lottery account moneys toward the Washington opportunity pathways account and that those funds stabilize and increase existing resources for the recruitment of entrepreneurial researchers, innovation partnership zones and research teams, early childhood education, opportunity grants, educational opportunity grants, get ready for math and science scholarships, passport to college promise scholarships, college bound scholarships, the state work-study program, the state need grant, Washington scholars awards, the Washington award for vocational excellence, and Washington promise scholarships. It is also the intent of the legislature to continue funding the education construction fund by redirecting a portion of general state revenues to that fund." [ 2010 1st sp.s. c 27 § 1.
