Budget and other bills signed into law

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT… the governor last week signed into law the 2011-2013 state budget, 2ESHB 1087.

She also signed the less-than-desirable compromise workers’ comp bill (EHB 2123), the RHC “reform” bill (2SSB 5459), the DOC criminal justice bill (ESSB 5891), the TANF bill (ESSB 5921) and the consolidation bill (ESSB 5931), without our requested vetoes of language taking away rights over competitive contracting and collective bargaining.

Also signed, ESSB 5860 to support our negotiated contracts and prohibit raises for WMS and exempt staff.
