(Olympia, WA)  --  Governor Jay Inslee, who's now officially sworn in for his second term in office, says fully funding public education in Washington is something the state government "must make happen."  Inslee told a joint session of the Legislature yesterday that, while he has his own plan to raise revenue to get K-through-12 schools sufficient funding, he also wants to hear what Republican lawmakers want to do for it.  Senate Majority Leader Mark Schoesler tells the "Spokesman-Review" the Republican plan will not be as reliant on taxes as Inslee's plan.  The governor said improving mental-health services in Washington is next on his priority list.
