government shutdown

Governor Jay Inslee’s budget director said Friday that negotiators have reached preliminary agreement on a key issue that’s been hanging them up.

Washington Governor Jay Inslee plans to convene budget negotiations in his office beginning at 10:00 a.m. Monday morning.

Preparations for a state government shutdown are underway because Washington lawmakers haven’t agreed on a budget for the next two years.

As promised, Washington Governor Jay Inslee has called an immediate second special session of the legislature. It begins Friday.
