Eye On Olympia

Better Locke the door…

As of this writing, there are eight days left in this year’s Legislative session. It’s widely expected to go into overtime.
Before everyone goes home, here are some of the key things Gov. Gary Locke says he wants done:
-Required statewide high-school graduation standards for math, reading and writing by 2008, plus science by 2010.
-Prescription-drug help: a “preferred drug list” for people on state prescription plans; a bulk-buying consortium for state agencies, senior citizens and the uninsured; and a clearinghouse to help steer senior citizens to low-income drug programs.
-Several water bills, including those promoting water storage.
-A gas tax and other fees or taxes to help pay for transportation projects.
