Gov. Jay Inslee attended the National Governors Association’s Winter Meeting in Washington, D.C. over the weekend. He joined a bipartisan group of governors who traveled to the nation’s capital to discuss mutual issues between states at breakfasts, plenary sessions and meetings.
Inslee joined fellow western state governors and federal cabinet officials at the Environmental Protection Agency on Sunday.
