“It’s been a frustrating process. Let’s leave it at that,” replied Mullet. “I think the Governor has put a lot of political capital into trying to keep any bills that would limit his emergency power authority from gaining traction during the legislative session.

Senate Bill 5063 addresses the controversy around Gov. Jay Inslee and the extended stay his emergency powers had once they were declared.
