What comes next for Boeing in Washington state?
In our opinion
Nearly a month has passed since a special legislative session was called by Washington Gov. Jay Inslee.
The job at hand was to try to wrangle together packages to fund major transportation projects and tax breaks to encourage one of the state’s foremost employers, Boeing, to keep building their world-class aircraft here.
The roads fix never actually made the agenda, and the Boeing deal was made moot when on Nov. 13 members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers voted overwhelmingly – by a 67 percent margin – to turn down a contract extension.
