Gov. Jay Inslee has for years fruitlessly yearned for climate-change legislation to reach his desk for a signature. Not anymore.
In a pair of Earth Day votes Monday, the Washington state Legislature sent two key climate-change bills to Inslee for approval.
Those, combined with final passage last week of two other carbon-reduction bills, will cement a landmark win in the governor’s long-sought and oft-foiled quest to curb global warming.
