Washington state will have almost $500 million less in its budget over the next two years, according to projections released Monday by the Washington State Economic and Revenue Forecast Council. Also on Monday, the Senate released its version of the capital budget, holding a hearing that afternoon.

Baydaa Alshatee has this week’s interns’ update: Support Senate Bill 5702!

I am a student senator at Everett Community College, and one of our focuses for fall quarter was housing insecurity. For a variety of reasons, many students are at risk or have experienced housing insecurity. As a senator, I get to interact with the student body as their peer and be a voice for them. That is how I made many friends who shared their stories with me.
