OLYMPIA, Wash. — Gov. Jay Inslee announced Monday that he would be rolling back three pandemic-related proclamations ahead of the state’s scheduled reopening on June 30. The first of the three proclamations coming off the books had suspended the job search requirement for people receiving unemployment benefits. That requirement had originally been paused shortly after the start of the pandemic, when unemployment rates had skyrocketed, and thousands of jobs were no longer available due to COVID-related shutdowns.
