Regular Session Over – Special Session Begins
April 23rd was the final day for the 2017 Legislative Session. Not surprisingly, the legislature did not complete its most important task: agreeing to and finalizing the 2017-2019 Biennial Budget. Consequently, last Friday (April 21) the Governor announced a 30-day special session to start April 24. Usually during a special session, only the ‘four corner’ budget negotiators (2-3 legislators from both party caucuses in the House and Senate) are in Olympia, unless leadership in both chambers determine they will move some priority bills that did not pass during the regular session but have a likely chance of passing.
During the regular session, FAN was proud to be supportive and/or a part of the... More »
