Inslee Scrubs Trip to Paris Air Show

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. – Governor Jay Inslee has decided to forgo this year's Paris Air Show.

Inslee says he will remain in Washington state to work on budget negotiations. Inslee says he's disappointed he will not be able to join the delegation but he says Congressman Rick Larsen has agreed to fill in.

Washington state's delegation includes dozens of people representing areas such as the aerospace industry and economic development. The governor was set to leave Friday and meet with Boeing officials along with executives of more than two dozen companies.

Washington lawmakers have been stuck in budget negotiations for the last several weeks and face a June 30 deadline to complete the work.
