VANCOUVER, Wash. -- Washingtonians were invited to hear and comment on the upcoming state budget at a packed meeting in Vancouver Tuesday night and the governor got an ear-full.

The hearings were designed to help develop Governor Chris Gregoire's budget for 2011-13. She wanted to include public input this year and citizens liked the idea, too.

The Office of Financial Management said they had to move the final two hearings to larger facilities. The July 27 Vancouver hearing will now take place in Gaiser Hall at Clark College.
