Inslee statement on Senate supplemental budget proposal

Story Body

“I applaud Senate Democrats for prioritizing education and funding the final payment on our McCleary obligations this year. With recent forecasts indicating Washington’s strong economy will generate an estimated $1 billion of additional revenue over the next three years, we can certainly afford to fund our commitments to our students.

"The Senate budget also makes crucial investments in urgent public needs such as the opioid crisis and mental health, while also providing people across the state some relief from property taxes.

“I look forward to seeing the House’s supplemental budget proposal tomorrow and moving forward to find common ground in the coming weeks.”
