Governor Inslee, legislative leaders to meet Monday to prepare for a new special session

At my request, legislative leaders agreed during a conference call earlier today to meet with me Monday to begin the necessary and difficult work before us. There is much that needs to be done before a special session can be called. I will ask lawmakers to do that work as quickly as humanly possible so that they can step up to our constitutional and moral obligations to our children and lift the court sanctions.
