WA Governor Assembling State Legislature for Boeing Related Bills

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, WA - Washington Governor Jay Inslee is calling the Legislature back to Olympia hoping to get approval for a package of bills related to Boeing.

 Inslee says he wants lawmakers to approve the bills in just one week, hoping to get Boeing to build the 777X in Washington. It includes a large transportation spending bill that lawmakers have spent almost a year debating. It would also extend tax breaks all the way to 2040.

 Inslee says the jobs are set for Puget Sound if the state acts now.

 The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers said its members will soon vote on an eight-year labor agreement that would guarantee construction of the new 777X in the Puget Sound. That agreement also includes concessions like a different retirement plan.
