Inslee to talk taxes and spending this morning

Gov. Jay Inslee will meet with reporters at 11 a.m. Thursday to discuss how he intends to close the state’s budget shortfall — projected at up to $1.3 billion — and boost education spending as ordered by the state Supreme Court.

Watch the governor’s presentation live on TVW, and come back to seattletimes.com for details and anaylsis from Olympia reporter Andrew Garber as the event gets started.

The GOP-led majority in the Senate will issue its budget in the coming days, followed by House Democrats. The legislative session is to run through the end of April.
