Washington Legislature Convenes Second Special Session
On May 23, the Washington Legislature adjourned its first special session sine die.
Lawmakers were unable to reach agreement on a budget bill during the session forcing Gov. Jay Inslee to call for a second 30-day special session to start immediately after adjournment.
A two-year operating budget needs signed into law by June 30 or the state faces a partial government shutdown.
