Washington Legislature Adjourns Special Session
On July 20, the Washington Legislature adjourned its third special session sine die.
Lawmakers were unable to reach agreement on a budget bill due to negotiations breaking down on a water-rights bill that was tied to the budget.
Gov. Jay Inslee indicated that he would not call lawmakers back for another overtime session unless they have a firm plan that will lead to a vote on the capital budget.
