Wash. Gov. Inslee Narrows List of Priorities for Special Session

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. - Washington Governor Jay Inslee has narrowed his list of top priorities for lawmakers to address in a special session. 

Inslee says the state Legislature must focus on the operating budget, a transportation-funding package and new legislation to crack down on drunken drivers. 

Recently, Inslee has also pushed other issues, including legislation to combat gun violence, new rules related to abortion insurance, and financial aid for young immigrants. 

While Inslee says he'll still welcome movement on those matters, they've previously faced challenges moving through the state Senate.
