Gubernatorial candidate Jay Inslee laid out a detailed jobs plan today with campaign events in Spokane and Seattle today. Inslee’s plan promotes so-called green energy jobs and his plan has tax breaks for start-up businesses, but it caught flak from state Republicans critical of past efforts to promote clean energy jobs.

The Associated Press has the story here. An overview of the plan is here, and further details from Inslee are here.

The Washington State Republican Party has complained that Inslee took months before laying out his plan. But party was no less critical once it saw the product.
