WA Legislature Convenes Second Special Session
The Washington Legislature adjourned its first special session on Thursday, May 28, 2015, only to immediately convene a second special session on Friday, May 29, 2015.
Gov. Jay Inslee called the second special session as a result of lawmakers’ inability to agree on a budget during the first special session.
Lawmakers must come to a budgetary agreement by July 1, 2015, or the state government could face a shutdown.
