The House Ways & Means Committee Wednesday night approved a proposed 2011-13 state budget of approximately $32 billion. SHB 1087 will now go to the full House for final consideration.
Prior to a vote Wednesday night on the budget bill, several amendments offered by majority Democrats were passed, while an alternative budget offered by Republicans was defeated. A more detailed review of the committee's actions was published today in the Kitsap Sun.
Senate Democrats are expected to release their version of a biennial budget next week.
