State House and Senate agree on budget, includes investments in mental health care

April 6, 2016

Last week, the Washington State Legislature reached agreement on a supplemental budget and concluded its special session. Overall, WSHA is very pleased with the results of the 2016 state legislative session. The budget is very good for hospitals and health systems, provides significant new funding for mental health and makes no significant cuts to hospitals or health care. Additionally, important funding was provided to implement many of the WSHA-supported policy bills.
