OLYMPIA —The Washington State Legislature adjourned minutes before its midnight deadline on April 28, ending its 105-day session on time for the first time since 2009.
Before the $52.4 billion biennium operating budget saw final passage, lawmakers worked out a deal that includes a school levy lid lift and prohibiting public records requests on the bump stock buyback plan.
“This truly has been an epic legislative session of unprecedented scope and dimension of achievements for the people in the state of Washington,” said Governor Jay Inslee at a press conference just after midnight.
