Inslee updates proclamation on consumer debt garnishments

March 17, 2021

Story 

Gov. Jay Inslee today updated a proclamation related to consumer debt garnishments. 

Proclamation 20-49, et seq., which generally prohibits garnishment for consumer debt in certain circumstances, is updated by replacing the specific reference to "federal stimulus payments" with "federal payments of any kind issued in response to the COVID-19 pandemic". 

This technical update will protect the new federal COVID-19 relief in the same manner that prior iterations of this proclamation protected federal stimulus payments. No other changes were made.
