Gregoire: Axing Critical Care
- Issue: On March 21, the Governor presented her budget proposal. She called it unsustainable in the long run, but a budget we can live with for now. No doubt she had to make some hard choices, and maybe most people in the state can live with it, but not everyone can. While she did preserve some important things in the budget, and even addressed a pending mental health crisis, she traded off some other important items in order to achieve that, and some of those trade-offs hurt too much for the Legislature to let them stand.
