Statewide Construction Projects Killed By GOP
July 18, 2017

The legislature needs to pass a budget by July 1st or the government will halt nearly all of its services – a disaster for Washington state. We need to force Republicans to come to the bargaining table so the legislature can come to an agreement on a budget and we can all avoid a government shutdown.
