Statement from House Republican Leader Dan Kristiansen on the operating budget agreement

House Republican Leader Dan Kristiansen, R-Snohomish, released the following statement today on the operating budget agreement:

“The budget agreement represents solutions and sacrifices from all sides. From day one, House Republicans have provided solutions to improve K-12 education outcomes, protect our most vulnerable citizens and reform state government. We appreciate being at the table and even mediating some budget negotiations. People have jokingly referred to my office as Switzerland, but it was important to provide a venue for open discussions and consensus.

“I’m disappointed with how state government shutdown rhetoric was amplified. This was unsettling to dedicated public employees and those who rely on state services. I also understand the public’s frustration with the process and pace of the negotiations. But, in the end, it was important to get it right.”
