Inslee unveils supplemental budget today

OLYMPIA -- Gov. Jay Inslee will introduce his proposal for changes in the 2013-15 biennial budget this morning at 11 a.m.

Inslee doesn't have much to work with. Forecasts for the remainder of the biennium project only slight changes in revenue, with continued slow economic growth. The level of uncertainty is rated as "extremely high" where "downside risks outweigh upside risks."

The supplemental budget is the prelude to the 2014 legislative session, which starts Jan. 13.
