Gov. Jay Inslee unveiled his proposal for how lawmakers should update the Washington state budget during the upcoming 2020 legislative session. While not legally binding this proposal shares executive branch priorities with lawmakers who are ultimately tasked with crafting and adopted a final plan. The most significant investment proposed by the governor is a plan to use more than $300 million from the state’s emergency reserves to address homelessness statewide. 
 
In this $53.3 billion spending plan, the governor continues to protect the credit union mission and associated tax structure. Highlights and more details can be found here
 
Lawmakers will convene in Olympia on January 13th for a quick 60-day session when they will review this proposal and ultimately develop their own budget bills.
