Your advocacy helped pass a strong supplemental budget.
The $64.1 billion supplemental budget passed on the final day of the session. It includes investments in K-12 education, housing, behavioral health, COVID-19 pandemic recovery, and safety net supports. The budget includes no new taxes. The Legislature also passed a 16-year, $17 billion transportation package called Move Ahead Washington. Gov. Inslee described the package as a “transformational, once in a generation feat” that would reduce emissions and dependence on fossil fuels. Unique features of this transportation package are the absence of a gas tax hike and a one-time $2-billion transfer from the general fund.
