State leaders discuss implications if budget impasse continues beyond June 30

Gov. Chris Gregoire is meeting with top state officials to discuss “what ifs” in the event legislators can’t agree on a 2011-13 operating budget by the time the current biennium ends June 30, various news media, including The Olympian, reported today.
Although this state never has witnessed a government shutdown as a result of a budget impasse, it has come close. OFM Director Marty Brown said lawmakers passed a budget on the last day of June in 1991.
