2020 is a supplemental year, which means that lawmakers will meet for 60 days, instead of the 105 days that they met last year. Bills that weren’t passed in 2019 will have the chance to be voted on again in 2020, and they will retain their placement in the legislature.
The Governor, House, and Senate will all release supplemental budget proposals that will add to the Operating Budget and ensure that all programs and departments funded by the state can continue to function smoothly.
As of December 2019, Governor Inslee has released his Supplemental Budget proposal. Lawmakers in the House and Senate must review his proposal. Later on in session, the House and the Senate will each release their own budget proposals, and negotiate amongst one another and the Governor to come up with a final Supplemental Budget.
As each budget is released, we will update our grid.
