3  Affirms the trial court’s ruling that the State was not meeting its obligation under Article IX  Finds that ESHB 2261 was a promising reform, and if funded, would remedy the deficiencies in state funding  Expresses intent to retain jurisdiction over the case to monitor implementation of ESHB 2261 and help ensure the State’s progress toward complying with its paramount duty by

4  Establishes the Joint Select Committee on Article IX Litigation to: ◦ Facilitate communication between the Washington Supreme Court and the Legislature with regard to Article IX legislation ◦ Advise the attorneys who represent the Legislature before the supreme court ◦ Inform members of the Legislature about communications from the supreme court regarding McCleary 4
