WA House Bill 1368 Appropriates $2.2B in Federal Funding

Gov. Jay Inslee recently signed House Bill 1368, which appropriates $2.2 billion in federal funding that has been allocated to states in response to the ongoing COVID emergency. The legislation takes effect immediately.

“Our focus this year is relief, recovery and resilience, and this legislation will help us make tremendous progress in all of those areas. Washingtonians have been exemplary in helping limit the spread of COVID-19, but it has not come without its economic and emotional costs,” Inslee said. “The process of getting to a post-pandemic era has already begun and we will come out of this stronger because of legislation like what I am signing today.”

In December, Inslee asked the legislature to act early on COVID relief legislation, and the legislature responded with HB 1368, which addresses a host of needs. The House legislation was sponsored by Rep. Timm Ormsby. Senator Christine Rolfes sponsored companion legislation in the Senate.
