Gov. Jay Inslee speaks at a news conference about funding of public schools Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2014, in Olympia, Wash. Inslee said he will push to close tax exemptions to find another $200 million for Washington's public schools. Republican leaders in the Legislature have said they will oppose efforts to add to the education budget this year. The money would pay for the reforms the Legislature has already approved, plus fulfilling a promise from the electorate by giving a 1.3 percent salary increase to teachers and staff.
