Budget BeatDuring this year’s legislative session we’ll be hosting calls twice a month, on Fridays at noon, to bring you important updates from Olympia, timely policy analysis, and useful resources to keep you informed and help you make an impact.

On each call we will:

  • Provide legislative updates and breaking news from Olympia
  • Highlight a relevant policy issue or legislative proposal
  • Encourage participants to share information, resources, and upcoming events

First call - Friday January 25th, noon to 12:30 p.m.

On tap for our first call we’ll review Governor Gregoire’s final budget proposal, which represents the starting point for budget negotiations between the House, Senate and Governor Inslee. Our Policy Analyst Kim Justice will unpack the proposal, highlighting potential revenue options and providing analysis on proposed budget cuts.
