We are now less than two weeks away from the end of the 60-day legislative session. The Senate approved its supplemental budget proposal late last week, and the House passed its corresponding budget last night.
The Senate proposal did not receive a single vote from our side of the aisle – mainly because the budget spends too much, saves too little and fails to provide full property-tax relief for hard-working Washingtonians. Instead, we voted for an alternative proposal that you can read more about below.
We will need to work very long hours during the next 10 days if we are going to finish by the March 8 deadline.
