Special Session Begins in Olympia Tomorrow
Governor Jay Inslee has called for a special session tomorrow in Olympia. He is urging lawmakers to pass a package of bills designed to get Boeing to build the composite wings and fuselage of its new 777x in Washington state. 14th District State Senator Curtis King said he didn’t expect the special session, but he understands the need for it “We’re talking about eighty some thousand jobs, that would be a big hit to our economy, that was the impetus to get this done. However we can’t just keep doing this for Boeing, we need to do this for all of the businesses in the State of Washington.”
Senator King expects that the Governor will also want to bring up a transportation package during the special session. King, who is co-chair of the Senate Transportation Committee says now is not the time. he said his committee is working on a transportation revenue
package which is not ready.
