OLYMPIA – Sen. Christine Rolfes (D-Bainbridge Island), chair of the Senate Ways & Means Committee, released this statement following the Washington State Supreme Court’s ruling in Chris Quinn v. State of Washington.

“Today’s decision provides much needed certainty for budget writers as the Legislature continues to craft our state’s next two-year operating budget. We are eager to expand support for working families, and today’s ruling locks in dedicated funding to increase access to affordable early learning and childcare.”
