Statement from Leader J.T. Wilcox and Senate Republican Leader John Braun to Gov. Jay Inslee

“We are calling on Governor Inslee to fully reopen the state immediately. He had left the door open to a reopening before June 30, and we viewed June 15 as a more appropriate target. Now, with vaccination rates continuing to increase, new CDC guidance and other states showing the way, we no longer see a need to wait two more weeks, and certainly not another month. The time to move our state forward is now. Washingtonians want to return to a sense of normalcy and businesses need more certainty as they attempt to recover.

Sen. John Braun, New GOP Leader in State Senate, Wears a Lot of Hats

Under more normal circumstances, state Senate Republican Leader John Braun would not be in his south Chehalis office midmorning on a weekday. He would have already made himself a quick breakfast in his Centralia home, stopped by his family company, Braun Northwest, and made the drive to the state Capitol. But with the current session being held remotely, Braun spends more time in his home district, out of what he calls the “bubble” of Olympia.

John Braun

District 20 Sen. John Braun will push for a statewide metric requiring the reopening of schools this legislative session. The Centralia Republican and newly-elected Senate Minority Leader pre-filed his first bill in partnership with Democrat Sen. Mark Mullet on Christmas Eve — a bill that would force public schools to reopen if they hit a new statewide benchmark regarding COVID-19 prevalence, but would leave the decision to shift to virtual learning up to school districts.
