Ellensburg, WA - Central Washington University's world wine program could get $350,000 in federal funding.
Congressman Doc Hastings announced at a press conference this morning at CWU that a key house committee approved the money to expand the program.
The money will be used to add courses focusing on wine quality.
The $350,000 has been included in a budget bill for next year.
It still has to get through the House and Senate.
