Rep. Jim Clark, R-Hayden Lake just asked for unanimous consent to concur in the Senate amendments to HB 599a, and there was no objection – so it was unanimous. Now the House still must debate and take a final vote on the amended bill. The Senate has begun debate on newly written HJR 5, the local government debt amendment, and Sen.
