PASCO, Wash. - U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell today launched the making of five Parent Information Resource Centers to be developed in our area.

She made the announcement at a meeting in Pasco joined by the Educational Service District.

Senator Cantwell says parents need to take advantage of these resources.
