Story 

Gov. Jay Inslee and Attorney General Bob Ferguson statement on the possible diversion of state military projects to pay for the president's proposed border wall. 

“We remain adamant that Washington state will not help subsidize President Trump’s unlawful and unconstitutional ‘emergency’ declaration to build his wall. We are closely monitoring developments. If a final decision is made to redirect funds from Washington projects to fund the president’s border wall, we will file a lawsuit. Our complaint is drafted and ready to file.”
