The Legislature adjourned "sine die" Thursday night, ending a short session that realized many of the governor's budget goals, headlined by a once-in-a-generation transportation revenue package that will reduce emissions and our dependence on fossil fuels. The Legislature also closed on important investments in housing and homelessness, education, and salmon recovery along with key policies to improve health care.
"Sixty days ago, I asked for big action and 60 days later legislators delivered," said Gov. Jay Inslee after legislators adjourned late Thursday. "While some work remains for next session, legislators acted on some of the most urgent issues facing Washingtonians."
In addition to the budget and transportation package, legislators approved over 300 bills this session. The actions include:
