HB 1021 - DIGEST

Finds that an increase in the governor's out-of-state travel for campaign-related or other nonstate business purposes is causing a budget shortfall in the funding for the executive protection unit in the Washington state patrol.

Creates the governor's nonstate business travel reimbursement account to which private contributions can be made to offset the extra protection and security costs as a result of the out-of-state travel.

Declares an intent, to the extent private contributions do not cover the extra costs, to reduce appropriations to the governor's office and increase appropriations to the Washington state patrol by the amount of the uncovered extra costs.
