AGLO 1978 NO. 30 >

(1) While the approval of the State Capitol Committee is not required by RCW 43.82.020 in connection with the reallocation of office space assignments as between state agencies within an existing state‑owned building in Thurston County, the committee's approval is required prior to any change in the basic use of such a building or its demolition and replacement by a new facility regardless of when the underlying real estate was acquired by the state.

(2) The term "acquisition," as used in RCW 43.82.020, does not include either the renting or leasing of real estate in Thurston County.
