WSHA Provides Analysis of Governor’s 2020 Supplemental Budget

December 19, 2019

Governor Jay Inslee released his proposed 2020 supplemental budget yesterday. Highlights of the budget include addressing the homelessness crisis, expanding early learning and combatting climate change. The governor’s proposal would utilize all of the forecasted revenue and does not propose to raise any new revenue.
The good news for hospitals and health systems is that there are no major funding cuts to health care and no new taxes proposed. There are modest investments in health care in this supplemental budget, including the continued support of the governor’s 5-year plan to decentralize long-term civil commitment patients. WSHA’s analysis of the governor’s proposed supplemental budget is here. (Chelene Whiteaker,
