The mostly virtual, 105-day legislative session ended on time, which may be the best thing we can say about an odd session that saw the public kept out of the process and one-party rule force through a far-left agenda. Even two months later, controversies that came up during the disappointing session continue to rage on.
There have been two separate lawsuits filed against the unconstitutional income tax Democrats passed. And even Democrats and traditional allies like the press and Tribes have been critical of Gov. Inslee’s arbitrary reopening and closing of Washington’s businesses, and illegal partial vetoes of negotiated legislation.
As tough as this session was, there were also a number of wins.
