Summer Legislative Session Update

Dear Colleague,

The Washington State Legislature has announced that it will not be reconvening for a special summer session. Instead, they will resume their budget discussions in late fall prior to the legislative session in early 2021.

This means that we as a College will not receive any firm numbers about our 2020-21 allocation for a few more months. As a result, the state community and technical colleges are dependent on information shared by the Office of the Governor in June to reduce our budget by 15% in response to the permanent loss of revenue associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please watch for an email invitation later this summer for the next Zoom Hall meeting for further updates. I hope you can find time to pause and renew this summer.

With care,
 

Cheryl Roberts, Ed.D.
President
