HB 2985: Relating to enhancing educational opportunities for vulnerable youth using funding distributed from the Puget Sound taxpayer accountability account

2985 states that funds from the Puget Sound taxpayer accountability account are not subject to appropriation. Only the state treasurer or treasurer’s designee may authorize expenditures from the account. The treasurer may expend moneys in the account only for distribution. 
Beginning in September 2018, counties must spend the distributions for early learning facilities and services, and K-12 and postsecondary support for youth and young adults who are low income, homeless, in foster care, or in the juvenile justice system.
