Johnson Not Impressed By Inslee Veto Threat

Washington 14th District Representative Norm Johnson says he is not impressed by Governor Jay Inslee’s threat to veto bills on his desk unless a supplemental budget arrives on his desk by Thursday, the final scheduled day of the 60-day session.  Johnson, a Republican, says the Governor, a Democrat, is out of line, noting it is not unusual for a budget agreement to not be in place at this point of a session.  Inslee said while negotiations between the Democratic-led House and the Republican-led Senate are continuing, lawmakers need to “pick up that pace substantially.”
