Caseload Forecast Council

RCW 43.88C

The Caseload Forecast Council develops caseload forecasts of state entitlement programs through an inclusive and transparent process. The council consists of two members appointed by the Governor and four individuals, one of whom is appointed by the chairperson of each of the two largest political caucuses in the Senate and House of Representatives. Forecasts developed by the council form the basis of the Governor's budget proposal. The Legislature uses the forecasts in the development of the omnibus biennial appropriations act. The Caseload Forecast Council develops and maintains an adult and juvenile sentencing information system; updates and publishes statistical summaries of adult felony sentencing and juvenile dispositions; and updates and publishes an adult felony sentencing manual and a juvenile sentencing manual.

Agency Mission

To provide state government with accurate, unbiased, and widely understood caseload forecasts; to analyze key forecast drivers; to identify the potential risks to the forecasts; and to provide accurate statewide adult and juvenile sentencing data and up-to-date adult and juvenile sentencing manuals.
