WA Legislature Adjourns Second Special Session, Convenes Third
The Washington Legislature adjourned its second special session on June 27, 2015, only to convene a third special session on the following day, June 28, 2015.
Legislators were under pressure to come to a budgetary agreement by July 1, 2015, or risk the shutdown of many government services. A budget bill was passed by both houses late Monday, June 29, 2015, and has been sent to the Governor.
Gov. Jay Inslee must sign the bill by midnight Tuesday, June 30, 2015, to avoid any interruption in government services and he plans to do so well in advance of the deadline on Tuesday.
