After a record-long three special sessions, the Washington Legislature left Olympia July 20. Lawmakers boasted of major new investments in public education to satisfy the state Supreme Court’s “McCleary” school funding requirements and a new paid family leave law. Others fault the Legislature for not passing a capital budget to fund school construction and other local building projects and for failing to pass water rights legislation to address the court’s Hirst decision that has resulted in many rural property owners being unable to develop on their land.
We’re interested in your view of the recently-concluded session. This brief survey takes less than five minutes to complete.
Thank you for participating and for your interest in Opportunity Washington.
