“Now, these same Democrats are saying the same thing we have been saying: Jay Inslee is making arbitrary decisions that are not based in science and we need legislative oversight…” – Chairman Heimlich

Full release: https://wsrp.org/democrat-legislators-finally-realized-they-need-to-reform-emergency-powers/

As we have said for 15 months. @GovInslee has been making arbitrary decisions that benefit his political allies and friends. He makes exceptions to the plan when it would force King and Snohomish Counties to roll back, but refused to grant the same exception to Pierce County.

Every single Democrat on this letter had the chance to vote for bills that would have reformed our state’s emergency powers, giving Legislators more oversight and they failed to do so. Still, this letter illuminates the fact that @GovInslee is NOT “following science.” #waleg https://twitter.com/BrandiKruse/status/1390421739767697410

Part 2: Braun’s SB 5114 would reopen Washington’s bars and restaurants and trust them to operate under safety guidelines. And provide a place to connect that is less risky than in our own homes. #waleg http://ow.ly/47nh50D90A2
