Inslee: Legislation Making Headway; COVID Began 1 Year Ago Today
Gov. Inslee's latest press conference did not contain any compelling, riveting news or information Thursday afternoon.
No mention was made of the previous Senate hearing on the bill to re open the state, which set a record for most people participating in the comment section. 1,600 business owners and citizens 'zoomed' in during the hearing Wednesday.
Inslee began by reminding everyone it was one year ago today that the first case of COVID 19 was reported, in Washington state no less.
He also mentioned about the mass vaccination locations being set up, as previously announced this week. These include the B-F Fairgrounds. He also said Amazon was putting on a vaccination event Sunday in Seattle, where 2,000 vaccines will be given out, in conjunction with Virginia Mason Medical.
He said the state, to date, 362,000 people have been vaccinated against COVID 19.
He also mentioned his equity legislative bills are "making headway," and was especially happy that his bill to end the use of credit scores for auto insurance qualifying was granted a Senate Committee hearing.
No mention of any economic news was made during the press conference.
