Inslee Unveils Government Performance Plan

Gov. Jay Inslee has unveiled an updated program for officials to track data on government performance and efficiency.

Inslee on Tuesday touted the plan, called "Results Washington," that he says will set goals for the state make it easier for state leaders to spot trends and make decisions based on data on issues ranging from education to the environment to the state's business climate.

Inslee says that once the system is fully in place, the public will be able to track how the state, as well as school districts, local governments and others deliver services and meet performance goals. He says the program builds off of one that had been in place under his predecessor, Gov. Chris Gregoire.

Inslee is holding a one-hour Twitter town hall on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. to discuss the plan.
