January 11, 2017

Summary 

In his remarks to a joint session of the Legislature, Inslee said that while legislators need to continue their work on issues such as mental health, homelessness, opioid addiction and other education investments for early learning and higher education, none of those issues is as important as fully funding K-12 education.

Inslee closed by reiterating Washington’s values and unwavering commitment to ensuring equal rights and human dignity. He reassured Washingtonians that no matter what happens in Washington, D.C., he will also not waver on state efforts to fight climate change and protect health care access for 750,000 people here now covered through the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid.
