We are pleased to share our summaries of the 2017 Washington Legislature's actions related to health care access:
It's not possible to convey the complexity of the budget in this document, so we have selected specific items based on the summaries for each agency. New spending that is not related to the passage of legislation is not listed in the budget - the changes are described in the summary of enacted bills. This session, the Legislature has not passed a Capital Budget. It is possible that a special session will be called later this year to do so. In the meantime, many proposed projects are not yet funded for this biennium.

"Within weeks of NoHLA's Medicaid training, I was able to use the information you taught us to identify numerous cases in which families were wrongly denied coverage—and to bring those cases forward to get them resolved.
