Christine Gregoire on Government Reform

Democratic WA Governor


Transform to 21st-century government that can't do it all

    This year, amid the worst economic climate in eight decades, our challenge is to actually transform Washington State government. I think each of you will find in the weeks ahead our budget crisis leaves us no other option. It will take tough, but wise decisions. I've offered a path forward. Here it is:
  1. We must create a stable, financially secure path for our future;
  2. We must recognize government cannot do it all; and
  3. We must transform government into a leaner, 21st century organization that is more effective and efficient.
This session is not just about getting us through this crisis. It's also about setting our state on a trajectory that ensures a strong financial foundation for our kids and grandkids. This is a budget and agenda that build the platform for better service and recovery in the years to come.
