Whether the bipartisan budget moves our state in the right direction and the minimal reforms squeezed by this coalition actual can be categorized as “reform” will need time and test to prove.

Washington State Senators had the courage to do what they thought was best for the state. For all the talk and all the chatter, where were Hobbs and Hatfield? What good is it all if you can not walk the talk?
