The Governor's New Budget Package

Governor Christine Gregoire announced that she is drafting a “compromise budget plan” that would include many of the legislatures “contentious proposals” into one package – to include raising taxes (naturally).

This proposal will be reviewed by House and Senate Leadership. At this time Gregoire would not reveal the specifics of the options or specific taxes. She publicly stated that “in the next 48 hours we could have an agreement.”

Lawmakers are trying to close roughly a half a billion dollar budget imbalance for the next two year budget cycle ending June 2013.
