House and Senate Proposed Budgets

March 5, 2020

In case you missed it, on February 24, the House and Senate each released their proposed 2020 supplemental operating budgets. While both budgets are very positive for health care, the Senate budget is more favorable for WSHA’s top budget priorities. Neither budget proposes cuts to hospitals or health care. The next step is for the two bodies to reconcile their differences and produce a budget by March 12, which is the last official day of 2020 legislative session.  For details of the two budgets, see last week’s Inside Olympia and WSHA’s detailed comparison document.
