MESSAGE FROM THE SECRETARY OF STATE


The Honorable Brad Owen

President of the State Senate

Legislature of the State of Washington

Olympia, Washington 98504

      Substitute Senate Bill No. 6675;

                                                      IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand

MESSAGE FROM THE GOVERNOR

PARTIAL VETO MESSAGE ON SUBSTITUTE SENATE BILL NO. 6675


March 23, 2000


To the Honorable President and Members,

  The Senate of the State of Washington

Ladies and Gentlemen:

      I am returning herewith, without my approval as to sections 4 and 8, Substitute Senate Bill No. 6675 entitled:

"AN ACT Relating to the provision of telecommunications services by public utility districts and rural port districts;"

      This bill gives public utility districts and rural port districts express authority to be wholesalers of telecommunications services within their districts. I support this legislation as a key step in promoting advanced telecommunications facilities and services in underserved areas of Washington.

      Sections 4 and 8 of the bill would impose overly restrictive requirements on public utility and rural port districts before financing or constructing telecommunications facilities, and would not significantly improve accountability. I strongly support the goal of ensuring accountability to the public. However, I believe that some of the requirements of sections 4 and 8 could impair districts' current activities and significantly complicate or delay the facilities and services that our rural areas so urgently need.

      I fully expect that public utility and port districts will respond appropriately to requests for information from the Legislature regardless of any statutory requirement to do so.

      For these reasons, I have vetoed sections 4 and 8 of Substitute Senate Bill No. 6675.

      With the exception of sections 4 and 8, Substitute Senate Bill No. 6675 is approved.

Respectfully submitted,

GARY LOCKE, Governor


MESSAGE FROM THE GOVERNOR

PARTIAL VETO MESSAGE ON ENGROSSED SECOND SUBSTITUTE SENATE BILL NO. 6400


March 24, 2000

To the Honorable President and Members,

  The Senate of the State of Washington

Ladies and Gentlemen:

      I am returning herewith, without my approval as to section 29, Engrossed Second Substitute Senate Bill No. 6400 entitled:

"AN ACT Relating to domestic violence;"

      This bill improves and clarifies our laws dealing with domestic violence in numerous ways, without imposing costs on state or local government. However, section 29 would make the entire bill "null and void" unless referenced and funded in the budget. Because the bill imposes no costs and requires no funding or reference in the budget, I have vetoed section 29.

      For these reasons, I have vetoed section 29 of Engrossed Second Substitute Senate Bill No. 6400.

      With the exception of section 29, Engrossed Second Substitute Senate Bill No. 6400 is approved.

Respectfully submitted,

GARY LOCKE, Governor


MOTION


      On motion of Senator Betti Sheldon, the partial veto messages on Substitute Senate Bill No. 6675 and Engrossed Second Substitute Senate Bill No. 6400 were held on the desk.

SENATE RESOLUTION 2000-8786


By Senators Shin, Zarelli and McAuliffe


      WHEREAS, Athletics is one of the most effective ways for young women to develop leadership skills, self-discipline, initiative, and confidence; and

      WHEREAS, The Meadowdale High School Girls’ Varsity Basketball Team, the Mavericks, demonstrated these qualities not only by defeating a strong team from Blanchet on March 4, 2000, to win this year’s Class 3A State Championship, but also by achieving their objective through adversity; and

      WHEREAS, members of the team are seniors Yvette Avila and Jane Ireland; juniors Audrey Hutchison, Kristen O’Neill, Leslie Martin, and Alecia Suelzle; sophomores Anne Dawson, Jennie Swerk, and Kristy Hoffman; and freshmen Jacci Baker and Tara Jacob; and

      WHEREAS, Karen Blair, head coach of the Mavericks Team for the past six years, is a Meadowdale graduate and former member of its team, who returned to the school with the goal of taking the team to the state championship; and

      WHEREAS, with strong support from assistant coaches Leah Johnson, John Pope, and Lisa Hoppe, Coach Blair proved her staff’s ability to instill winning qualities that were remembered by the girls even during times when the goal might have looked discouragingly far away; and

      WHEREAS, The 1999-2000 Mavericks struggled early in a rebuilding season that followed the graduation of five team leaders the previous year, and played a tough schedule this year with eight losses going into the district tournament; and

      WHEREAS, The girls played knowing that earlier Maverick teams had won one-hundred games and lost only ten in the previous four years; and

      WHEREAS, The Mavericks lost a crucial game at district, requiring them to rally and qualify from the losers’ bracket, but under the leadership of Coach Blair the girls pulled together as a team in this adversity and rededicated themselves to their goal, keeping in mind that it was important to be positive and have fun regardless of the outcome; and

      WHEREAS, The Mavericks persevered to defeat strong teams with better records and win the State 3A Girls Basketball Championship for the year 2000; and

      WHEREAS, Mayor Tina Roberts of the city of Lynnwood honored the team by declaring the week of March 13-19, 2000, as Meadowdale Mavericks Week;

      NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, That the members of the Washington State Senate do hereby recognize Coach Karen Blair and all members of the Meadowdale Mavericks Girls’ Varsity Basketball Team for demonstrating skill, determination, and courage in winning the 2000 Class 3A High School Girls’ Basketball Championship; and.

      BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That the Secretary of the Senate immediately transmit a copy of this resolution to Meadowdale High School, to Coach Karen Blair, and to each member of the State Champion Meadowdale Mavericks.

INTRODUCTION OF SPECIAL GUESTS


      The President welcomed and introduced members of the Meadowdale High School Girls' State Class 3A Basketball Team who, were seated in the gallery.

SECOND READING


      SENATE BILL NO. 6088, by Senator Loveland

 

Making supplemental operating and capital appropriations.

 

MOTIONS


      On motion of Senator Snyder, Substitute Senate Bill No. 6088 was substituted for Senate Bill No. 6088 and the substitute bill was placed on second reading and read the second time.

      Senator Thibaudeau moved that the following amendments by Senators Thibaudeau and Deccio be considered simultaneously and be adopted:On page 61, on line 32, increase the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2001 by $1,000,000.

       On page 61, on line 34, increase the general fund--federal appropriation by $1,000,000.

       Adjust the totals accordingly.

       On page 65, after line 17, insert the following:

       "(j) Notwithstanding any other limitations in this section, the secretary shall transfer $1,000,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2001 and $1,000,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation, or so much thereof as may be necessary, between subsections (1) and (2) of this section to implement the choice of service provisions in RCW 71A.16.010.


POINT OF INQUIRY


      Senator Deccio: “Senator Thibaudeau, if these amendments pass, then we are, in effect, changing state policy which would direct the Department of Social and Health Services to allow choice for cottages operated by the state either for placement or for respite care and they would have to follow the policy dictated by this amendment, which is the intent of the Legislature? Is that correct?”

      Senator Thibaudeau: “That is correct, Senator Deccio. We thought we were doing that a couple of years ago and apparently that didn’t happen, so this will provide that the department follow that policy. Thank you.”

      Further debate ensued.

      The President declared the question before the Senate to be the adoption of the amendments by Senators Thibaudeau and Deccio on page 61, lines 32 and 34, and page 65, after line 17, to Substitute Senate Bill No. 6088.

      The motion by Senator Thibaudeau carried and the amendments were adopted.

      Debate ensued.

      The President declared the question before the Senate to be the adoption of the amendment by Senator Honeyford on page 218, line 26, to Substitute Senate Bill No. 6088.

      The motion by Senator Honeyford carried and the amendment was adopted.

       The appropriations in this subsection are subject to the following conditions and limitations:

       (a) The health services account appropriation and $127,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely for health care benefits for home care workers with family incomes below 200 percent of the federal poverty level who are employed through state contracts for twenty hours per week or more. Premium payments for individual provider home care workers shall be made only to the subsidized basic health plan. Home care agencies may obtain coverage either through the basic health plan or through an alternative plan with substantially equivalent benefits.

       (b) $3,100,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2000, $4,650,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2001, and $8,250,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely to increase services and supports for people with developmental disabilities. These funds shall be expended in accordance with priorities established by the stakeholder advisory group established in accordance with chapter 216, Laws of 1998 (developmental disabilities), except that (i) at least 60 percent of these amounts must be used to increase the number of people receiving residential, employment, family support, or other direct services; (ii) the services and supports must be designed and implemented such that the cost of continuing them in the 2001-03 biennium does not exceed $19.2 million, of which no more than $9.3 million is from state funds; and (iii) strong consideration shall be given to the need for increased wages for direct care workers in contracted residential programs.

       (c) $82,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2000, $329,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2001, and $428,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely to increase the number of developmentally disabled people receiving residential, employment, family support, or other direct services.

The department shall use these funds and other resources appropriated in this section and in section 205(1) of this act to assure that the average number of persons with developmental disabilities in the state hospitals does not exceed sixty-six per day during the first biennial quarter; sixty per day during the second; fifty-four per day during the third; and forty-eight per day during the final quarter of the 1999-2001 biennium. The developmental disabilities program shall transfer $285 of the general fund--state appropriation to the mental health program for each bed-day by which these quarterly targets are exceeded.))

       (e) $513,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2000, $1,421,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2001, and $2,033,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided to develop and operate secure residential and day program placements for persons who seem likely to pose a significant risk to the public safety if their current residential arrangement were to continue.

       (f) $209,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2000, $664,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2001, and $939,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided to increase wages as required by Initiative No. 688 (state minimum wage) for contracted adult family homes, adult residential care facilities, hourly and daily family support providers, and hourly attendant care providers.

       (g) $1,978,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2000, $4,475,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2001, and $6,989,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely to increase compensation for individual and agency home care workers. Payments to individual providers are to be increased from $6.18 per hour to $6.68 per hour on July 1, 1999, and to $7.18 per hour on July 1, 2000. Payments to agency providers are to be increased to $11.97 per hour on July 1, 1999, and to $12.62 per hour on July 1, 2000. All but 14 cents per hour of the July 1, 1999, increase to agency providers, and all but 15 cents per hour of the additional July 1, 2000, increase is to be used to increase wages for direct care workers. The appropriations in this subsection also include the funds needed for the employer share of unemployment and social security taxes on the amount of the increase.

       (h) Within amounts appropriated in this subsection, the developmental disabilities program shall contract for a pilot program to test an alternative service delivery model for persons with autism. The department must use a competitive process to determine the site of the pilot. The pilot program must be time-limited and subject to an evaluation of client outcomes to determine the effectiveness and efficiency of the pilot program compared to the standard service model for persons with autism.

       (i) $1,919,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2000, $6,673,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2001, and $7,361,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely to improve services for persons with developmental disabilities who would otherwise be at risk of needing involuntary commitment to or prolonged treatment at state psychiatric hospitals. The department shall use these funds to enhance the community crisis response system managed by regional support networks, improve crisis prevention and stabilization services through the developmental disabilities community services system, and expand community residential capacity for persons with developmental disabilities who are ready for discharge from state psychiatric hospitals. Funding for community residential capacity is sufficient to move a biennium total of 48 patients out of the state hospitals at a reasonable pace by June 30, 2001. The department shall manage the intensity of services provided so that the average cost per day does not exceed $300 per person placed in this expanded community residential capacity. The department shall report to the appropriate committees of the legislature on progress towards implementing this subsection after each calendar quarter. The legislature finds that, in addition to the appropriations in this subsection for improvements in services to persons with developmental disabilities who are committed to the custody of the secretary under chapter 71.05 RCW, it is necessary to study long-term treatment alternatives and their legal, fiscal, and policy implications. Therefore, the department shall provide a report to the ways and means committee of the senate and the appropriations committee of the house of representatives by December 1, 2000, containing options and recommendations for secure treatment programs. The report shall identify various treatment models that could be implemented and various types and locations of secure facilities, both state-owned and leased, in which programs could be sited, together with the department's recommendations. The report shall evaluate the potential for siting such programs on the grounds of existing state residential habilitation centers. The report shall also include analysis of advantages and disadvantages associated with contracting for some or all of the new program options identified. The report shall evaluate the options based on short-term and long-term costs, client and community security, efficiency of coordination with other service delivery systems, and how they address specific legal issues. In developing this report, the department shall invite participation by representatives of the Washington protection and advocacy system (WPAS), and shall include in the report WPAS' position on options and recommendations submitted by the department and any additional recommendations made by WPAS. The legislature recognizes a need to improve long-term services provided to individuals with developmental disabilities who are undergoing involuntary treatment under chapter 71.05 RCW. The legislature is committed to providing resources necessary to address issues in the U.S. District Court case of Allen v. Western State Hospital.

       (j) $500,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2001 and $160,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely for increased family support services and related case management support.

       (k) $2,000,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2001 and $2,000,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely to implement the choice of service provisions in RCW 71A.16.010. The secretary may transfer these amounts between subsections (1) and (2) of this section.

       (15))) (11) In accordance with Substitute Senate Bill No. 5968, (($25,978,000)) $70,821,000 of the health services account appropriation for fiscal year 2000, (($26,069,000)) $42,041,000 of the health services account appropriation for fiscal year 2001, and (($56,002,000)) $120,278,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation, or so much thereof as may be expended without exceeding the medicare upper payment limit, are provided solely for supplemental payments to nursing homes operated by rural public hospital districts. Such payments shall be distributed among the participating rural public hospital districts proportional to the number of days of medicaid-funded nursing home care provided by each district during the preceding calendar year, relative to the total number of such days of care provided by all participating rural public hospital districts. Prior to making any supplemental payments, the department shall first obtain federal approval for such payments under the medicaid state plan. The payments shall further be conditioned upon (a) a contractual commitment by the association of public hospital districts and participating rural public hospital districts to make an intergovernmental transfer to the state treasurer, for deposit into the health services account, equal to at least ((82)) 86 percent of the total supplemental payment ((amount)) amounts received during the 1999-01 fiscal biennium; and (b) a contractual commitment by the participating districts to not allow expenditures covered by the supplemental payments to be used for medicaid nursing home rate-setting.

Expenditure of the amounts in this subsection is contingent upon federal approval of a state plan amendment that will authorize payments to the University of Washington and Harborview Medical Center for state fiscal year 2001 at 100 percent of the allowable medicaid upper payment limit.

       (13) From funds provided in this section, the department shall develop disease state management and therapeutic substitution programs which will substantially maintain or enhance the quality of the drug benefit for medical assistance recipients, while controlling overall health care costs. In designing the disease state management programs, the department shall research programs which have proven effective with similar populations in other states, and shall then work with concerned provider and consumer groups to adapt those strategies to Washington's service delivery system. The department shall work with its drug utilization and education council to develop a therapeutic substitution program for at least two classes of drugs. Under the therapeutic substitution program, the council shall analyze pharmacoeconomic research on the costs and benefits of all drugs within the class, and identify the most cost-effective drug or drugs within the class for placement on the formulary. Other drugs within the class shall be preauthorized when clinically indicated under criteria established by the council. The department shall report to the appropriate committees of the legislature by December 1, 2000, prior to implementing its proposed strategies.

       (14) $926,000 of the health services account--state appropriation for fiscal year 2001 and $676,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely for an enhanced rural reimbursement program.

If cost-based reimbursement is considered, it is as defined by the hospital's cost to charge ratio. Any additional payments made by the medical assistance administration for the healthy options program shall be no more than the additional amounts per service paid under this section for other medical assistance programs. By December 15, 2000, the department shall report on the overall increase in case-mix adjusted rates resulting from the reimbursement changes authorized in this subsection. If the overall case-mix adjusted rate of increase resulting from the use of the reimbursement methodology authorized in this subsection exceeds twice the federal health care financing administration hospital marketbasket index, then the department shall make recommendations as to how the rate of increase can be controlled.

       (15) $290,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2001 is provided solely for implementation of the asset exemption provisions of House Bill No. 2686. If these provisions are not enacted by June 30, 2000, the amount provided in this subsection shall lapse.

       (16) $1,529,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2000, $4,077,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2001, and $5,394,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely for implementation of the settlement negotiated by the department and the attorney general in the case of Allenmore et al. v.
