Week seven was yet another busy week for the legislature as the opposite policy house committee cutoff was on Thursday. That means if a bill was introduced in the House, it needed to pass through its policy committee in the Senate to still be considered alive, and vice versa for Senate legislation. It is important to note that legislation deemed necessary to implement the budget is exempt from cut-offs.
In the second half of the biennium, the legislature is tasked with passing Supplemental Operating, Capital and Transportation Budgets. On Monday, both the House and the Senate released their respective versions of the Supplemental Operating Budgets. The Operating Budget that was approved last Spring adopted a $59 billion dollar two-year spending plan. The 2022 supplemental operation budget proposed by the House (HB 1816) increases spending by $6.2 billion while the Senate (SB 5693) increases spending by $5.8 billion.
The Senate’s proposed Supplemental Operating Budget utilizes state and federal money and allots $700 million to address housing homeless, $600 million for schools, and nearly $400 million for retrofitting older schools for seismic activity. Behavioral health and environmental issues were the top priority. Senators Rolfes and Robinson held a press conference surrounding the Senate Democratic Supplemental Operating Budget to discuss their proposal. On Friday evening, the bill was debated on the Senate Floor, where it ultimately passed 29-19.
House Democrats’ breakdown for their proposal allotted money in the following ways; $800 million for K-12 education, $280 million towards childcare, $364 million for housing and homeless, $184 for human services, $700 million towards public health, vaccines, and COVID response, $160 million for public safety, $478 million towards natural resources, $333 towards behavioral health, $200 million for small and businesses that struggled during COVID. On Monday, a press release presenting the House Democratic Supplemental Operating Budget was held by House Majority Leader Sullivan, Appropriations Chair Ormsby, Finance Chair Frame, and Appropriations Vice Chairs Gregersen, Macri, and Bergquist. House Appropriations held a public hearing and took executive action on this legislation over the week. The House is expected to strike their language onto the Senate vehicle and then pass the Senate bill. At that point the bill will go into conference where House and Senate Budget writers will negotiate a final budget.
Last week, the Senate released a bipartisan Supplemental Capital Budget proposal (SB 5651) the proposal includes $94.8 million in spending from available bond capacity, $561.6 million from American Rescue Plan Act State Fiscal Recovery Funds, and $290.3 million from federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. The House Supplemental Capital Budget (HB 1781)bipartisan proposal was released on Monday and it included $77.4 million in spending from available bond capacity, $637 million from a General Fund-State deposit into the Capital Community Assistance Account, and $263.8 million from the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Both the House and Senate Capital Supplemental Budget proposals make large investments into housing affordability and homelessness, behavioral health, and broadband infrastructure.
The revenue portion of the transportation package called Move Ahead Washington (SB 5974) has captured a lot of scrutiny by surrounding states due to the fuel export tax which intends to pay for $2 billion of new projects outlined in the proposed transportation budget. Click Here to see what other states are saying.
Following the opposite house fiscal cut off on Monday, February 28th both the House and Senate will head to the floor to pass bills out of their respective chambers. Negotiations between House and Senate budget writers will continue over the last two weeks until they reach agreement and pass the final supplemental budgets. The Legislature is scheduled to adjourn on March 10th.
We are working to keep HB 1846 moving forward. There continues to be broad-based support and momentum for Senator Carlyle’s hydrogen bill (SB 5910) and it looks as though that will pass forward; there are also references in the budget for that.
The House capital budget came out and there are minimal changes to the Clean Energy Fund however, if it remains intact, it does provide additional funding for a smelter restart and Grant County infrastructure development outlined in the Governor’s proposed budget.
