Budget Update - 6/30/2017:


The Washington State Legislature released the state Omnibus Operating Budget (PSSB 5883) for 2017-2019 early in the morning Friday, June 30, 2017. There was no merger of the LEOFF 1 Retirement Plan. The state legislators are leaving our retirement money alone.
Special thanks to:
  • Senator Mark Miloscia
  • 30th Legislative District
  • Senator Phil Fortunato
  • 31st Legislative District
  • House of Representatives
Thank you for all your help.
