1 WASA 113 Superintendents’ Component Group Tumwater, March 26, 2014

2  Background ◦ Setting the Stage for the 2014 Session  2014 Supplemental Budget Overview ◦ Operating Budget McCleary Impacts ◦ Capital Budget  Key Legislation  2015-17 Biennium 2

3  Even-year “short” session, limited to 60 days ◦ (Convenes: Jan. 13; Sine Die: March 13)  Major focus: ◦ 2014 Supplemental Budgets  Tweaks to 2-year Operating & Capital Budgets ◦ Policy issues  All un-adopted bills reintroduced ◦ Full Transportation Budget & Revenue Package 3

4  14 new members in Legislature ◦ 8 new House members ◦ 6 new Senate members (5 from House)  Legislative Control: ◦ House: D’s maintain control, 55-43 ◦ Senate Majority Coalition (23 R’s + 2 D’s) gain 1 new R, control with 26-23 members  Budget Situation: Ending Fund Balance ◦ June ’13 - $53 million ◦ November ‘13 - $214.9 million ◦ February ‘14 - $228.9 million- 4

5  The Legislature took “meaningful steps in the 2013 legislative session to address the constitutional imperative of amply providing for basic education.”  The funding provided, however, represents “only a 6.7% increase over the current constitutionally inadequate level of funding” and the state “cannot realistically claim to have made significant progress when its own analysis shows that it is not on target to implement ESHB 2261 and SHB 2776 by the 2017–18 school year.” 5

6 6  The Legislature failed to comply with the Court’s December 2012 Order and the new Order directs the state to “submit, by April 30, 2014, a complete plan for fully implementing its program of basic education for each school year between now and the 2017–18 school year.” The plan must also include “a phase-in schedule for fully funding each of the components of basic education.”  The 2014 session presents “an opportunity to take a significant step forward.”

7 7  “The need for immediate action could not be more apparent. Conversely, failing to act would send a strong message about the state’s good faith commitment toward fulfilling its constitutional promise.”  The Legislature must “demonstrate, through immediate, concrete action, that it is making real and measurable progress, not simply promises.”
