Getting some recognition for UW women

University of Washington’s women’s softball already has the College World Series trophy, so it’s not clear how excited they’ll be about congressional recognition.

But Washington Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell introduced a Senate Resolution todday, congratulating them on their first-ever NCAA championship. The resolution hasn’t been approved yet, but it’s likely to sail through…barring a filibuster by senators from Florida.

Full text of the resolution is inside the blog.
