State Senator Maralyn Chase says that she joined one other Democrat in voting against the Senate’s budget resolution last week because it doesn’t protect Washington’s most vulnerable citizens.

In a video message to constituents, Chase criticized the resolution for its deep cuts to education, the disability lifeline and care for mentally handicapped citizens.
She said Friday that the State shouldn’t balance the budget by hurting the State’s most vulnerable citizens.

Chase represents Shoreline, Lake Forest Park and the rest of the 32nd Legislative District.
