5930 Performance Measures

The 2007 Washington State Legislature passed Engrossed Second Substitute House Bill (E2SHB) 5930, also known as the Blue Ribbon Commission bill. Sections 60-65 of the bill addressed public health and are now codified in RCW 43.70.512522.

The new law required public health officials to develop and report on performance measures for the $20 million (per biennium) of new general fund state dollars and to identify, prioritize, and develop performance measures for the core public health functions of statewide significance. This new funding stream and effort, known as '5930' after the bill number, is not a program unto itself, but rather additional funding to enhance public health work in the priorities identified in the Creating a Stronger Public Health System report. These web pages provide information about the efforts related to the public health portion of E2SSB 5930 (PDF). A Background (PDF) and an Overview (PDF) provide more specific details around these efforts.
