“Today, we join all Americans in celebrating Juneteenth, a joyful and momentous day commemorating the end of slavery in our country.”—@GOPChairwoman
From not relinquishing his emergency powers, refusing to acknowledge that we have hit his 70% vaccination threshold, constantly changing the science behind his reopening plan, to signing two bills at the same time on purpose to get attention.

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.

The Washington Research Council concludes that the Legislature (Democrats) spent heavily this past legislative session and potentially created operating budget challenges for the future. Learn more about its findings in this June 16 policy brief: http://ow.ly/OW0x30rL7aS #waleg
From @seattletimes editorial board: Because the Legislature punted on choosing between them and sent both bills, the governor’s job was to figure out which was more important before signing them. Here is where Inslee fell down on his desk. http://ow.ly/AbYn30rL5Sy #waleg
From @komonews: “We should open up,” said state Rep. J.T. Wilcox, a House Republican leader. “The governor has achieved what he said he wanted to achieve. The people of Washington have come through on that and we should open up immediately.” http://ow.ly/6knV30rKSqe #waleg
