What the Legislature got done in 2015

Having noted Congress’ accomplishments for 2015 yesterday, we’ll continue in the same vein for the Washington Legislature, but we’re also making mention of where those accomplishments fell short – the “yeah-buts” where attention should be paid in the new year. The Legislature had two big to-do items this year: continued work to meet a state Supreme Court order to amply fund K-12 education and pass a transportation package that would fund a backlog of road and bridge maintenance, new road construction and transit programs.
