Statement from Gov. Jay Inslee on passage of supplemental operating budget

Story Body

“Legislators today concluded their most important order of business — passing a supplemental budget that keeps our books balanced and our state agencies fully open for business to serve the people of Washington. I appreciate the work of Senate and House budget negotiators to reach a good compromise that legislators were able to support on a bipartisan basis. We’ll have more work to do next year on education, mental health and teacher recruitment. But supplemental budgets are largely about modest adjustments and updates to the two-year budget, and that’s exactly what legislators accomplished.”
