As the 2016 Legislative session nears the 60 day mark, Reps. Brad Hawkins and Cary Condotta talk about the on-going budget talks with KOZI radio. Both lawmakers say they believe that the session will end on time, but there remains some question about whether a supplemental budget will be brought forth. Law does not require that one be introduced, as the state already has a budget in place. Condotta mentioned three key areas in which Republican legislators in the House have offered solutions to pressing concerns in the state, only to be turned down by the majority party. These include charter schools, transgender bathroom concerns, and career and technical education.
Condotta and Hawkins, both Republicans from East Wenatchee, were joined by Sen. Linda Evans Parlette.
