OLYMPIA — The Legislature adjourned for the day Sunday without reaching a budget agreement, which means that thousands of state workers will begin receiving notifications Monday that they will be temporarily laid off starting July 1 if no deal is reached by then.
The House and Senate, however, plan to resume negotiations Monday.
If lawmakers don’t agree on a budget by the end of June, there will be cutbacks in law enforcement and health services. State parks will close.
Jobs are also on the line, with layoff warning notices set to go out Monday.
The governor’s office put out a contingency plan last week in case the state government closes on July 1. For a complete list of programs and services that will be affected, click here.
