House Bill 1978 passed off of the House Floor with a 67 to 28 vote. It will now move onto the Senate for further consideration.
Things are moving quickly in Olympia today. The House Stimulus bill that moved out this morning just passed out of the Senate moments ago with a 45 to 4 vote. It will not be delivered to the Governor's desk. Moving the bill on the same day shows how high of a priority this legislation is.
