Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.- On a visit to the Hanford Reach Interpretive Center's site Thursday, Washington Governor Christine Gregoire renewed her support for the Center while praising the people heading up the building efforts.

Gregoire met with about ten local leaders at the Center's Columbia Point South building site.

She says the Center is important to people today, but it's biggest impact will be on future generations.

"The people that are involved in this project here today are leaving a amazing legacy to the future and most particularly to our children," she said. 

The $40 million Center is being funded through a mix of federal, state and private dollars.

On Tuesday, the Governor signed off on another $3 million to help build the museum.
