House, Senate Release Proposed Supplemental Budgets

February 23, 2022

The House and Senate on Monday, Feb. 21, released their proposed supplemental operating budgets for the remainder of the 2021-2023 biennium.  Both the House and Senate budgets provide significant funding to address long-term care, difficult to discharge and hospital throughput issues. The budgets also include significant investments in health care workforce and behavioral health. Combined funding for WSHA’s main budget priorities include $456 million state funds and $883 million total funds in the House, and $396 million state funds and $659 million total funds in the Senate. The final budget will be released by March 10, following negotiations between the chambers.
