State lawmakers across the country will be convening in 2021 with the continuing COVID-19 pandemic rippling through much of their work — and even affecting the way they work. After 10 months of emergency orders and restrictions from governors and local executive officials, some state lawmakers are eager to reassert their power over statewide decisions shaping the way people shop, work, worship and attend school

SPOKANE, Wash. — Governor Jay Inslee will be in town Tuesday to tour Stevens Elementary.

The tour is to show Inslee how schooling under COVID-19 restrictions works for students and teachers. Inslee will meet with students and staff at 11:30 a.m.

This follows last week’s announcement that the state is adjusting its school reopening guidance in order to allow more kids to return to the classroom.
