Rep. Helen Sommers Vs. The World

posted by on March 27 at 9:59 AM

The state Senate will unveil its budget tomorrow. Their budget is certain to include a rainy day fund. The budget released by the state House yesterday does not include a rainy day fund.

So now: It’s the Governor and the Senate vs. longtime House Appropriations Committee chair, Seattle area Rep. Helen Sommers (D-36). Sommers doesn’t think the legislature should have its hands tied when it’s doing its budgeting.

Prediction: The Senate and the Governor win—and voters decide the issue this November. (Creating a Rainy Day Fund requires a Constitutional amendment).

Don't underestimate the ever cagey Helen Sommers.
