Overall, the governor offered high praise for what the session did accomplish on housing, special education, and gun laws, but he is disappointed the legislature failed to pass a so called Blake fix a law to address the state Supreme Court decision that effectively decriminalized possession of illegal drugs. We expect the Washington state legislature to produce a bill that will not decriminalize drugs, will provide measures for treatment and will provide some sanction for those who fail to accept treatment. He's calling for further action and soon. We need to hammer out a bill that can pass. Instantly stops short of calling for a special session, but his meeting is clear.

Republicans against Senate Bill 57 68 say the last minute push for their approval after governor Jay inslee already had the DOC purchased 30,000 doses of mifepristone removes their opportunity for legislative oversight and would set a precedent for similar moves by the governor.

Washington's governor joined his democratic counterparts from Massachusetts and Pennsylvania with a promise of future lawsuits to protect abortion access. Here's northwest news radio's Ryan Harris. Governor Jay inslee remains defiant following the federal court ruling from Texas that the FDA aired when it approved the abortion drug mifepristone with a conflicting ruling from an eastern Washington federal court. The issue will likely come before the Supreme Court, but inslee says regardless of the high court's decision. Even if it was affirmed, we will continue to distribute the product because under Washington law, we have the right to do that after the governor talked about future lawsuits. I asked him if that includes litigation over any restrictions on the other abortion drug misoprostol or laws from other states like Idaho restricting access to abortions in Washington. You can be confident that we will take any appropriate measure to protect this right. What I know is trying to do is to dictate to what happens in the state of Washington.
