Wilcox: Governor Inslee is once again overstepping his veto authority and ignoring the state constitution

House Republican Leader J.T. Wilcox issued the following statement Monday in response to Gov. Jay Inslee’s partial vetoes of House Bill 1091 and Senate Bill 5126:

“Governor Inslee is once again overstepping his veto authority and ignoring the state constitution. When this happened in 2019, the Legislature challenged him in court and prevailed. It is good to see that Democratic legislative leaders are again threatening to go to court and hold the governor accountable. We should all join together to send a strong message about the governor’s emergency powers, too.”
