Levy cliff waiting for Governor Inslee signature

With an uncharacteristic bending of the rules, the House ignored all the steps of the legislative process and approved ESB 5023, the levy cliff bill on a 87-10 vote.  What’s unusual is that the Senate approved the bill last night and 15 hours later the House approved it.  Normally, it takes at least a day to assign the bill to a committee, have a public hearing, vote in committee, etc., which usually takes a couple of weeks.  It shows how important it was to get the issue resolved as quickly as possible.  I expect Governor Inslee to sign the bill within the next couple of days.

I wish they would treat PSE’s paraeducator bill or insurance bill the same way (just dreaming).
