“Patty Murray may have started off as the Mom in Tennis Shoes but after thirty years she is just another D.C. insider who is more concerned with catering to special interests than listening to the voters of Washington state.” -WSRP Chairman Caleb Heimlich
Jay Inslee is using unchecked executive powers to force residents to pay more for gas at the pumps during a time when gas prices are already skyrocketing.
BREAKING – Speaker Jinkins: “The governor’s partial veto today of E3SHB 1091, the clean fuel standard bill, reaches beyond his constitutional powers and we will ask the Washington courts to again rule on the balance of legislative and executive branch powers.” #waleg

Glad to see our campaign to reopen Washington is working. Jay Inslee is finally listening to the science and the people.
Too bad it took so long…
Sen. Lynda Wilson: Costly new budget just signed by @GovInslee just made WA a more regressive place to live. People would have been far better off with the Republican approach…which offered tax relief, not new/higher taxes. #waleg #Washington #taxapalooza http://ow.ly/9vJ050EPQLJ
Jay Inslee on signing carbon legislation which has conservatively been estimated by respected consulting firms to raise the cost of gas by 95 cents/gal by 2028: “Don’t let anyone give you that swill that it is going to increase prices.” 2:07 pm 5/17/21 #waleg
And just like that, with a single-vote margin (25-24) and bipartisan opposition, an income tax passes off the Senate floor. Not an excise tax…an income tax. Something Washingtonians have voted down 10 times and still oppose according to a recent Elway Poll. #NoIncomeTax #waleg
For months conservatives have criticized WA Gov Inslee’s handling of the pandemic. But now even some Democrats are exasperated at the pace of reopening. As are some local officials.

Sen. Braun to Inslee: Time to take the fencing down. Read his letter to the governor: http://ow.ly/70RA50Drv74 #waleg #OpenSafeOpenNow
House Republican Leader J.T. Wilcox: It’s good to see Democratic legislative leaders are again threatening to go to court and hold the governor accountable. We should join together to send a strong message about the governor’s emergency powers too. http://ow.ly/5m4u50EPyW7 #waleg
Another story on our call to reopen Washington state before June 30 from @Mynorthwest. http://ow.ly/73cH50EOWb3 #waleg
Today, Gov. Inslee signed the low-carbon fuel standard mandate and cap-and-tax scheme bills into law. Both measures are regressive and will greatly increase the costs of gas and diesel in the years to come. The governor and Democrats may also increase the state gas tax. #waleg
Republican leaders to Gov. Jay Inslee: Fully reopen by June 15 and end state of emergency. http://ow.ly/s3lU50EMOdv #waleg
Breaking news from @Q13FOX: Washington Gov. Jay Inslee announced that all counties will be in Phase 3 of the Healthy Washington re-opening plan on May 18. He said the state is on track for full re-opening by June 30. http://ow.ly/wMM030rHIGv #waleg
