2022 is a supplemental year, which means that lawmakers will meet for only 60 days, instead of the 105 days that they met last year. Bills that weren’t passed in 2021 will have the chance to be voted on again in 2022, and they will retain their placement in the legislative process.
The Governor, House, and Senate will all release supplemental budget proposals that add to the Operating Budget to ensure that all programs and departments funded by the state can continue to function.
At the end of 2021, Governor Inslee released his supplemental budget proposal for the remainder of the 2021-2023 biennium. Take a look at our analysis of the Governor’s proposal here.
