Fiscal flexibility bill did not pass

SHB 2006 did not pass the Senate before the legislative cutoff and is likely considered dead for the session. The bill would have allowed additional counties with more than 90,000 population the authority to impose the voter-approved county criminal justice levy and removed non-supplanting restrictions from the mental health sales tax. Earlier versions of the bill also removed non-supplanting language from the multi-year levy lid lift authority.
