‘Six months ago, I signed a new two-year budget for the state. As I said at the time, it is a great budget for Washington state — a budget that is moving our state forward,” Inslee said. “This supplemental budget will focus on implementing these historic investments and make modest, responsible adjustments to follow through on our good work,'” quoting Gov.
