Gov. Jay Inslee’s first proposal to pass the Legislature will get its final stamp of approval today from the governor himself. Senate Bill 5802 lays the groundwork for a study of how Washington should meet its goals for reducing greenhouse gases. Inslee plans to sign it at 1 p.m. in the Bullitt Center in Seattle.
Back at the Capitol, the House Transportation Committee will consider at its 3:30 p.m. meeting some ideas that would address delays and errors in transportation projects. House Bill 1978 would create a new process for environmental permitting for road projects. House Bill 1986 would require the Department of Transportation to report on errors costing more than $500,000.
Lawmakers on many committees are trying to beat a Wednesday deadline for their proposals to advance.

Sen. Mike Padden, R-Spokane Valley, is the prime sponsor of Senate Bill 5010.
