SEATTLE (AP) - The Seattle School Board has rejected a gift from the federal government because of expensive strings attached.

The district could have had the vacant Federal Reserve Bank building for free for a downtown school, but the district would have been required to make renovations estimated at $53 million.

KIRO reports (https://bit.ly/1ArsV4Q) the school district would still like to have the building and may buy it at auction - without any strings attached.
